Port of Grays Harbor Caps 2019 in a Solid Financial Position

By Karen Robes Meeks

At nearly $34 million, the Port of Grays Harbor posted its second highest overall operating revenue and highest revenue by the Marine Terminals.

Although vessels calls fell in 2019, the port moved almost three million metric tons of cargo at its four terminal, a historic tonnage record.

Following two years of record cargo growth, the port is looking at growth opportunities in the coming years.

“We hope to increase the diversity of cargoes we handle here at the Port with progress on a potential new project and private investment at Terminal 3,” said port Executive Director Gary Nelson. “We will also move forward with preparing the former pontoon site for future development to support cargo operations at adjacent Terminal 4. As you will hear from us throughout the year, the Future is Here, in Grays Harbor.”
