On November 19, the Port of Portland, OR, announced that the South Korea-based container carrier SM Line will bring weekly container shipping service to Portland.
SM Line launched in 2017 and continues to expand its presence on the Asia-North America trade route to meet growing demand.
The Port of Portland’s Terminal 6 will be added to SM Line’s existing rotation to the Pacific Northwest, which includes stops in Vancouver, BC, and Seattle, WA.
This additional shipping opportunity will serve various containerized agricultural exports in the region, including grains, potatoes, peas, lentils, and hay.
