Now TWO major container shippers have called it quits at Port of Portland

Although there are ten other Portland shipping terminals that remain quite busy handling cargo for overseas as well as domestic ports in the U.S., Terminal 6 has run out of shippers. A shipping service serving European ports has now backed out due to what was termed bad labor conditions with the longshoreman’s union. The union blamed the go-between shipping broker for the mess – the broker blamed the union.

Either way it’s made Terminal 6 a very quiet spot on the Portland waterfront, this latest development coming right after the biggest shipping line bailed out for the same stated reason. And that’s a bad sound for Oregon’s agri-business that now must scramble to get their products overseas.
