North Star Winners Announced

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Northwest Seaport Alliance named its North Star Awards winners at an April 24 breakfast event at the Museum of Flight. Prologis netted the Cargo Anchor Award, which recognizes businesses that increase cargo volume and generate economic activity for the Puget Sound.

The company garnered a nomination for the 1.3-million-square-foot Prologis Park Tacoma project and for the Prologis Georgetown Crossroads, a multi-story in-fill warehouse development.

TOTE Maritime Alaska earned the Environmental Stewardship Award for promoting sustainability and showing its commitment to the environment. The company has plans to move its Orca Class vessels to liquefied natural gas.

“These awards recognize the great work of these businesses and the entire industry to build a strong Puget Sound gateway,” said Port of Seattle Commissioner Peter Steinbrueck. “The alliance is proud of our partnerships with industry to create new jobs and promote a competitive, innovative culture.”
