Container on barge service is temporarily suspended. However, starting in Jan. 2018, the Port of Portland announced that Swire Shipping will begin offering container and general cargo service at the port’s Terminal 6. Hopefully, the resumption of container service at Portland will lead to the return of container on barge service on the Columbia-Snake River System.
Please contact Kim, Port of Lewiston Traffic Manager, to inquire about container shipping status.
