Port of Tacoma's winter Pacific Gateway online

The Winter 2008 edition of Pacific Gateway, the Port of Tacoma’s quarterly magazine, is now available online.
The lead feature, “The Fab Years,” profiles recently retired Port Commissioner Jack Fabulich, his 31 years on the Port Commission and a lifetime of service to the Tacoma-Pierce County community.
“Where the Rails Meet the Sails,” this edition’s cover story, details the rail system that serves Port customers, from the Port’s four on-dock intermodal yards and the Tacoma Rail shortline to the transcontinental rail service provided by BNSF Railway and Union Pacific Railroad.
Also featured is Tahoma Imports, a company created one Christmas morning when Tacoma resident Joe Zawacki took note of where his gifts were made.
Other stories profile Pierce County’s warehousing boom and the coming redevelopment of the Totem Ocean Trailer Express (TOTE) Terminal at the Port of Tacoma.
