Port of Olympia Creates Alaskan Project Cargo Service
Partners with PacArctic to handle construction and oil & gas cargoes
The Port of Olympia and Alaska’s PacArctic will establish a monthly general cargo service between Washington state and Point MacKenzie, Alaska, starting April 19.
The service will export supplies and equipment for the construction and oil and gas industries, the port’s marine terminal business manager, Jim Knight, told local reporters.
PacArctic has leased two acres at the Port for its business, which will run through October 4, but the port hopes to extend the arrangement.
PacArctic is a logistics company that handles much of the project cargo that arrives for jobs in Alaska. It is based at the new port at Point MacKenzie, across Cook Inlet from the Port of Anchorage.
