Husky Terminal, Tacoma Starts Operation at New Premises

After several months of reconfiguration, Husky Terminal and Stevedoring, Inc. will handle the first vessel at the new premises in the Port of Tacoma later this week.

According to the agreement concluded last year between Port of Tacoma and International Transportation Service, Inc. (I.T.S.), a member of "K" Line Group, which operates three container marine terminals along the U.S. West Coast including Husky Terminal in Tacoma, Husky Terminal has just completed its relocation to new premises at "Terminal 3 and 4" after more than 20 years of operation at "Terminal 7D".

Verrazano Bridge, one of the five 4000 TEU container vessels that were delivered from the end last year to the beginning this year and currently deployed in "K" Line's PNW service, is scheduled to be docked along the new terminal in the morning on 9TH June, 2005 and about 2800 units of containers will be handled between the vessel and the dock.

Husky's new terminal of approx. 74 acres will start operations with four Post-Panamax quay cranes allocated along the two berths that are 1950ft and 950ft long each whereas it previously operated with four Panamax quay cranes on about 33 acres before its relocation. The 950ft berth of the new terminal is planned to be extended to 1200ft with total acreage expanded to approx. 93 acres in 2006.
