Washington State port celebrates 100,000 Chrysler exports
The Port of Grays Harbor, Wash. along with Chrysler executives, representatives from Siem Car Carriers, terminal operator, Pasha Group, and Local 24, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in recognition of 100,000 export vehicles processed for Chrysler.
The Chrysler vehicles are shipped out of Grays Harbor to ports in Asia via Siem's North American Pacific Asia roll-on roll-off service.
"Exports are a driver of U.S. economic growth, and Siem is proud to have been part of the Chrysler resurgence. Despite a challenging global economy, there is a continued global demand for American goods. And increased exports mean increased job opportunities. Our partnership with Pasha and the Port of Grays Harbor provides expansion opportunities for all of us," said Jeff Campbell, vice president of Siem at the ceremony.
