Increased Rail Capacity on Washington’s Coast

Written by  Super User

The Port of Grays Harbor Commissioners authorized an $11 million rail construction project recently. Combined with the recently completed first phase rail project, the Port of Grays Harbor is adding more than 36,000 feet of rail capacity in the marine complex to accommodate growing automobile and grain export volumes.

This rural port district on Washington State’s Pacific Coast is demonstrating how their unique transportation links between American producers and growing international markets can stimulate the economy. With export shipping volumes up 85% over 2009 volumes, the Port of Grays Harbor is making strategic investments in rail and marine capacity to ensure their position in global shipping markets.

Although forest products comprise an important part of the Port of Grays Harbor cargo mix, other products like dry agricultural products and automobiles are now the volume leaders through this Pacific Coast port.

Grays Harbor is served by the only active rail system to the coast in Oregon and Washington. Founded in 1911, the Port of Grays Harbor is one of Washington State’s oldest port districts. The Port operates four deepwater marine terminals and hundreds of acres of marine industrial property.

Redback Industries specializes in cargo lashing which stays tight during transit and is ideal for securing heavy loads inside of containers and rail cars, as well as onto vessels, barges and flat rack containers. Redback Industries provides composite strapping, woven polyester strapping and cargo lashing for cargo securement. For more information please visit our site at
