Continued voyage consistency and increased vessel calls in March contributed to a strong first quarter finish of NWSA’s container business, according to NWSA.

Earlier this year, NWSA received $12 million from the newly-formed Federal Zero-Emission Charging and Fueling Infrastructure Grant Program.

More recently, NWSA established a comprehensive cargo and service incentive programme to increase international container rail freight volumes and improve service delivery in the Seattle and Tacoma harbours.
