Port of Longview
Our mission is to promote commerce and economic development through strategic public investments for the benefit of our communities.
The Port of Longview, Washington, is the first full-service operating port on the deep-draft Columbia River shipping channel in Southwest Washington State. With more than 500 acres of active industrial property equipped for marine services, storage and industrial use, Longview is an efficient link in supply chains stretching between Asia, Europe and the Americas. In operation since 1921, the Port of Longview has a proud history of service as the connection between raw materials and the industrial customers who create finished goods around the globe.
At just 66 miles from the mouth of the Columbia River at the Pacific Ocean, Longview offers direct intermodal connections to all regional rail lines and swift connections to highways, including Interstate 5 north or south, and Interstates 84 and 90 for east and west bound cargo heading to or from the Port. Additionally, the Port of Longview is the only bulk/breakbulk port on the Columbia River able to utilize the full deep-draft navigation channel on a single tide, eliminating additional wait time for the next high tide. Superior transportation connections make Longview ideal for bulk, breakbulk and project shipments via the Pacific Northwest.
Connecting source goods and materials to their final destination is only one of the connections the Port of Longview makes. The Port takes great pride in the connections it has made with customers and partners in support of Port operations. From the many different labor organizations that support the transfer of goods, to the transportation and logistics organizations that direct cargo through the Port on roads, rails and the river, the Port of Longview is known for its role in facilitating efficient business and trade for the benefit of all its strategic partners.
