Maersk to continue calling Port of Seattle
The Port of Seattle announced that Denmark's Maersk Line has renewed its agreement with SSA Marine to continue calling the operator's Terminal 18 via the TP9 shared service with France's CMA CGM that utilizes 8 vessels each.
"This is great news for the Port of Seattle," said Tay Yoshitani, Port of Seattle CEO in a statement.
The announcement on the Maersk renewal follows news from earlier this year that the Grand Alliance of Hapag-Lloyd, NYK and Orient Overseas Container Line, in addition to Hamburg-Süd and ZIM, would leave the Port of Seattle and start calling Washington United Terminal at nearby Port of Tacoma, which commenced this month.
