PORT SYSTEM STUDY FOR THE PUBLIC PORTS OF WASHINGTON STATE AND PORTLAND, OREGON. VOLUME I. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The Port System Study for the public ports of Washington State and Portland, Oregon examines the actions required to maintain a system of maritime ports capable of meeting the future requirements of foreign and domestic trade. The study forecasts waterborne commerce and changes in shipping and cargo handling technologies to the year 2000. The study then translates these anticipated changes into port facility needs and financial requirements over the same period. Finally the study recommends an organizational approach for coordinating future port developments, thereby ensuring the most effective use of public funds. The study is intended to serve as a comprehensive base for cooperative regional port planning and development activities.
