Longview seeks Bridgeview proposals

September 30 - On the US West Coast, the Port of Longview is seeking proposals for available industrial waterfront property on the Columbia River.

It says that as the first port on the deep-draft shipping channel with direct transportation connections to international markets, this is significant opportunity to establish new cargo operations on the Columbia River.

Bridgeview Terminal, which is comprised of two cargo docks and upland areas, recently became available when a long-term lease with its former bulk cargo operator/tenant expired earlier this year. While the port is primarily interested in responses to import or export bulk cargoes, it will consider opportunities for other marine-dependent uses.

"Opportunities to establish new terminal operations or terminal redevelopment are minimal on the West Coast," said business development manager Laurie Nelson-Cooley. "Our intent is to maximise this terminal based on cargo throughput, job creation and return on investment to our customers and community partners."

Issuing the Request for Proposal is the second step in the redevelopment of Bridgeview Terminal. In June of this year, the port issued a Request for Expression of Interest to determine interest in the property, which yielded a high response.

The Request for Proposal document and related documents can be found on the Port's website http://www.portoflongview.com/DoingBusiness.aspx
