    • About

      The Port of Tacoma is a major center for container cargo, bulk, breakbulk, autos and heavy-lift cargo. Created by Pierce County citizens in 1918, the Port of Tacoma has become one of the largest container ports in North America and one of the top 50 in the world.

      Located on Commencement Bay, a natural deep-water harbor in South Puget Sound, the Port is ideally situated for creating jobs through Pacific Rim trade. The Port encompasses about 2,400 acres of land on the Tacoma Tideflats.

      Five publicly elected commissioners govern the Port district, which encompasses all of Pierce County. Commission meetings are open to the public, available for viewing live and on demand online, and rebroadcast throughout Pierce County on local TV channels.
