The study and preparation of a long-range development plan for the Port of Longview, Washington was determined as a necessity to insure that the port continued to serve the Longview area as a marine port and maintained a competitive position in the Pacific coast trade. Recent changes in flow of cargo over the Port docks brought a reduction in revenue. This, coupled with the need to evaluate changes in port and shipping technology, stimulated the decision for this analysis. However, neither the method of analysis nor their needs were defined. To address these problems, an approach organized into three phases was recommended. The initial phase was the study design, which involved initial analysis and the familiarization of the study team with the Port, the staff, and the commission. After completion of this phase, a detailed analysis of the operation, constraints, and potentials was made, and presented to the staff and commission which provided feedback. After completion of the analysis phase and basic agreement on the conceptual development, a detailed plan was prepared in the third phase.
