Weekly container service to resume

A container ship is loaded at the Port of Portland’s Terminal 6 in this Capital Press file photo. China cut tariffs on $75 billion of U.S. imports including auto parts on Thursday, Feb. 6 in response to American reductions as part of their truce in a trade war.

Oregon’s agricultural exporters will soon gain a more accessible link to Asian markets with the resumption of weekly container ship service at the Port of Portland.

Ocean carriers stopped calling on the port’s container terminal in 2015 and 2016 due to productivity slowdowns associated with a labor dispute.
