Green Marine welcomes a 16th U.S. port

October 4, 2016

Green Marine is pleased to welcome the Port of Olympia among its participants. The Port of Olympia is the 16th U.S. port to join the Green Marine environmental program. This new membership brings the total of Green Marine participants to 104.

The Port of Olympia is located in South Puget Sound in Washington State. It is a multi-use publically owned and operated port focused on bulk and breakbulk cargoes including logs, organic grains, proppants, livestock, heavy lift, and wind components.


With various rail and road accesses, the Port is an ideal intermodal hub for various niche cargoes across different industries. It offers on-dock rail capabilities, a 140 metric ton lifting capacity Gottwald mobile harbor crane, close proximity to I-5, and both BNSF and UP rail service. The Port also has its 76,000 square foot open beam warehouse in close proximity to its dock with 39 feet of dredged depth at mean low low water.

It differentiates itself from its competition through its flexible longshore labor and the unique relationship with management.  The ILWU Local 47 prides itself in being first-in-class for reliability in handling the most challenging cargo.  Also, the Port owns various equipment and operates within a secure U.S. Customs bonded facility that includes a Foreign Trade Zone (216).
