The US west coast port of Portland is set to welcome a weekly container service for the first time in nearly five years.
South Korea’s SM Line will launch a service in January connecting Portland to China and South Korea.
The last time Portland had a regular liner call was back in 2015 with another Korean, Hanjin Shipping. Hanjin quit as tensions between the local workforce and the then operator, ICTSI, escalated. ICTSI has since quit the port.
