Port of Everett celebrates 1,000th Boeing barge

July 12 - The Port of Everett has celebrated the thousandth barge carrying aerospace parts for the Boeing Company's 747, 767 and 777 airplane models.

The first barge arrived in the Port of Everett's shipping terminals in 1993 carrying 777 airplane parts in oversized containers. Over the years, the business has grown to support 777, 767 and 747 models in oversized and standard shipping containers.

"The thousandth barge is a key point in the Port's steady transition from older economies to aerospace and other specialty commodities," port commissioner Mark Wolken said.

"Growth in cargo volumes and our partnership with Boeing has justified investment in port facilities and equipment to attract and support both Boeing and non-Boeing cargoes," said Carl Wollebek, chief of operations for the Port of Everett.
