Welcome to Washington Ports!

Tacoma Port Crane
If you live in Washington, chances are that most of what you eat, wear and use came through a Washington port. There are 75 port districts located in our state, and because of the work they do, Washington’s products share a single market: the world.

In 1911, the state legislature authorized the Port District Act, allowing citizens to create port districts. Since that time, our state has grown to be the most trade-dependent in the union. And that trade activity is responsible for one in every four jobs in Washington.

But ports do much more than promote trade at our shipping terminals: they operate marinas, docks, airports, railroads, industrial sites, and recreational facilities. Ports bring economic development – investment and jobs – to their communities.
