The Northwest Seaport Alliance

Formed in 2015 as a result of competition from other local ports, the Port of Seattle and Port of Tacoma merged all marine cargo operations and formed The Northwest Seaport Alliance. Today, the NWSA is the fourth-largest container gateway in the United States and a key economic transport hub. The NWSA offers shorter U.S.-to-Asia transits, as well as a deep connection to Alaska and Hawaii. Some of the top international trading partners include China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, and many more ports across the world.
