Port’s summer Pacific Gateway online

The Summer 2008 edition of the Port of Tacoma’s award-winning Pacific Gateway magazine is now available online.

Readers will learn about the Tacoma region’s growing base of warehousing and import distribution centers. Another article examines how industry leaders are addressing the growth of international trade in the Pacific Northwest and intermodal rail system capacity.

Tacoma-based Emerald Home Furnishings is profiled in a business feature. This furniture importer and wholesale distributor is a home-grown success — starting small and going global. Pacific Gateway readers will also get the latest on the Blair-Hylebos Peninsula redevelopment plans, including the Port’s historic agreements with the Puyallup Tribe of Indians and SSA Containers, Inc.

Tall Ships Tacoma 2008 graces this edition’s cover, with a photo-packed feature that looks at the recent 2008 event along with a series of compelling tall ship stories from 19th Century Tacoma.
