Port of Seattle

In the early 1900’s people quickly realized Seattle’s natural deep-water port was a strategic asset and resource that would facilitate trade routes throughout the world, establishing Seattle as an economic hub.

Today’s Port of Seattle continues to be a vital part of international trade, ranking in the top ten of the largest United States seaports and top twenty of the busiest air passenger and air cargo ports.

The Green Gateway

Since 2007, the Port of Seattle adopted the goal of becoming the cleanest, greenest, most energy efficient port in the nation. Building on existing programs, the Port is knows as “The Green Gateway.” Our Seaport is an industry leader, offering the lowest carbon footprint for the cargo shipped by sea and then rail from Asia to the Midwest. Both the Seaport and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport have received awards for their environmental efforts.
