The Port of Everett, located just 25 miles north of Seattle is a natural deep-water port that specializes in handling overdimensional, high value cargoes for the construction and manufacturing industries, and is a vital link for the local aerospace industry transporting the parts for the 747, 767, 777 and soon to be 777X jetliners.
According to the 2012 U.S. Census Bureau Foreign Trade Division, the Port of Everett seaport ranks 5th on the West Coast in export value, and is the second fastest growing export port on the coast. The Port of Everett, second only to the Port of Seattle in Washington state, exported more than $12.6 billion in cargo in 2011, representing a 29 percent growth over the previous year. The top five spots went to the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, Seattle and Everett.
One of the Port of Everett’s strategic priorities is to establish a strong job base in our community. With more than 60 percent of jobs tied to trade in Snohomish County, the Port of Everett continuously looks for ways to expand our cargo handling capabilities and move freight more efficiently.
