Two Bombardier streetcars used during the Winter Olympics in Vancouver B.C. recently returned to the Port of Tacoma. The streetcars were originally shipped from Germany through the Port of Tacoma last December on Wallenius Wilhelmsen Line.

International freight forwarder Fracht handled the logistics planning to move the streetcars from Germany to Canada. It also designed and built a custom bridge and ramp for loading the equipment.

Bombardier received a sustainability award for the 60-day demonstration streetcar project from the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
