Tacoma, Seattle Ports Approve Northwest Seaport Alliance Plan

Two ports that for decades competed fiercely for Puget Sound shipping business toasted a friendly new alliance that will join terminal operations and marketing activities under a single management. Those Champagne toasts came after the governing commissions of the ports of Tacoma and Seattle voted unanimously to seek the blessing of the Federal Maritime Commission for the newly named Northwest Seaport Alliance that will link the two ports' shipping terminals to form the nation's third-large container port. The two rivals agreed to join their operations to counter the threat of rival ports in Canada, Mexico, the East Coast and Southern California pose to their business. Puget Sound ports have been losing market share in the container shipping business for years. The expansion of the Panama Canal and a tax break enjoyed by Canadian ports has been putting increasing pressure of Puget Sound ports. The unanimous approval came only after Port of Tacoma Commissioner Don Meyer unsuccessfully proposed an amendment to the deal. Meyer' amendment would have required a formal review of the alliance, its goals and achievements before the alliance sixth year. The review would have been undertaken by a committee of commissioners from both ports and maritime business and community members appointed by both ports. That nine-member committee would have issued a report but would have had no power to force changes in the alliance operations. If the Federal Maritime Commission approves the alliance agreement and there is little indication it won't the two ports will begin the phased implementation of the alliance plan later this summer. The two commissions' separate votes set in motion a formal process seeking federal approval of the operating combine. If the commission encounters no issues, that body could approve the alliance by early August. The finances of the alliance will be separated from the two ports' beginning in January.
