Welcome to Port of Tacoma

The Port of Tacoma is a major seaport and an economic engine for South Puget Sound. Port activities are connected to more than 43,000 family-wage jobs in Pierce County and 113,000 jobs across Washington state.

A major gateway to Asia and Alaska, the Port of Tacoma is among the largest container ports in North America. It is also a major center for bulk, breakbulk and project/heavy-lift cargoes, as well as automobiles and trucks.

In 2013, the Port of Tacoma handled nearly 2 million containers and $48.7 million in trade.

The Port of Tacoma offers one of the shortest transit times between Asia and the U.S. West Coast. It also handles 70 percent of all waterborne trade between Alaska and the Lower 48.

Five commissioners set policy and strategic direction for the Port of Tacoma, and CEO John Wolfe leads a team of about 250 employees. The commission holds regular public meetings on the first and third Thursday of each month.
