Oregon to get new 1m teu container port

So this is news for the West Coast; there aren’t many 1M teu container ports there. But guess the location: Coos Bay, OR.

Coos Bay is a lovely oceanside town, a favorite with retirees and nature lovers. A friend of mine recently moved there.

The folks there aren’t going to be wild about a big container port, with all the trucks jamming up the highways and the air and other pollution being spread. In fairness, the plan does include rail to the port, which should reduce the need for drayage trucks. But it won’t eliminate them.
