Foss Maritime’s Carolyn Dorothy and Sarah assisted the first-ever arrival of an MSC ship calling on the Port of Portland this morning. Under rainy skies, the MSC ELA arrived in Portland, Oregon. Foss’ Carolyn Dorothy and Sarah harbor tugs greeted the MSC ELA on the Columbia River. 

“MSC calling on the Port of Portland is a huge boost for the region, and illustrates the strength of the maritime infrastructure along the Columbia River. Foss Maritime is proud to be entrusted with the first of many MSC vessels and we are excited to see the region continue to grow,” said Art Dahlin, General Manager for Foss in the Columbia Snake River region. “As a solution to the many challenges facing the supply chain due to the pandemic, MSC’s arrival supports the fact that the Port of Portland is a viable option for shipping companies calling on U.S. West Coast ports,” added Dahlin.
