Oversized containers arrive in Everett

The port of Everett has welcomed the first specialised containers carrying aerospace components for the new Boeing 777X.

The components arrived at the port of Everett's Pier 1 from Nagoya, Japan onboard Westwood Shipping's vessel Balsa.

The oversized containers were subsequently offloaded using a Gottwald mobile harbour crane capable of handling the heavier, larger aerospace containers arriving in Everett.

HLPFI reported in its January/February 2018 edition that the start of production of the new B777X aircraft at Boeing's manufacturing facilities, located close to the port of Everett, would generate a steady flow of aircraft parts through the gateway.

In April, work to begin modernising the port's South Terminal facility to better accommodate the next generation of aerospace and other over-dimensional cargoes will commence, as HLPFI reported here. Construction work at the terminal is expected to be complete in December 2019.
