Port of Longview Appoints Director of Marine Terminals


The Port of Longview in the US state of Washington has hired Mark Price as its Director of Marine Terminals to manage cargo operations and ensure that the port continues its rate of growth and undertakes major infrastructure projects successfully.

Prior to joining the port, Price oversaw operations for one of the largest energy infrastructure companies in North America, Kinder Morgan, at its Portland, Vancouver and Longview locations.

He brings over 20 years of experience working on the waterfront across the Pacific Northwest and will work closely with the Business Development Department to establish key marketing cargo strategies to secure new maritime opportunities and expand the port’s customer base.

The port’s mid-year cargo volumes were reported as 5.2 million metric tons for 2017, up nearly 10% above last year’s volumes from the same time period, after increases in bulk agriculture exports, bulk minerals and logs.

One of the largest increases was in bulk minerals with more than 300,000 metric tons exported — a 56% increase.

Norm Krehbiel, Port of Longview Chief Executive Officer, said: “Mark is an outstanding addition to our team. His experience and knowledge of Northwest ports provides valuable input to our operations and business development.”

Price said: “The Port of Longview is an established leader in the cargo handling industry.

“I believe my proven track record in managing safe, environmentally sound and productive cargo operations will continue to add to the Port’s successes.”  

Operating since 1921, the Port of Longview has eight marine terminals and waterfront industrial property spanning 835 acres on the deep-draft Columbia River, 66 miles from the Pacific Ocean in Southwest Washington state.
