The Port of Everett, located 25 miles north of Seattle, is a strategic self-operating seaport that supports nearly $30 BILLION worth of U.S. exports annually, ranking as the #1 export customs district in Washington state – #4 on the U.S West Coast.

The Port of Everett is the third largest container port in the state and is the region’s premiere breakbulk facility, handling high-value, overdimensional cargoes in support of the aerospace, manufacturing, construction, agriculture, energy and forest products industries. Most notably, the Port of Everett serves as an extension of the aerospace manufacturing process, accommodating 100-percent of the oversized aerospace parts for the 747, 767, 777 and soon to be 777X.

The Port of Everett’s regional transportation network supports more than 34,000 jobs and $313 million in state and local tax revenue. 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 keep freight moving efficiently.
