Our Vision

A vision statement is a desired future state communicated in present tense. It serves as a destination point of where the Port wants to be in five years. What does the Port look like five years from now? How is it perceived? What is it focused on? The Port of Lewiston is a respected leader contributing to the region’s economic growth and vitality; a model of excellence for transportation, international trade, and job creation.

Our Mission

A mission statement describes an organization’s purpose and reason for existence. It shares what the Port engages in and how it carries out its work and services. The mission of the Port of Lewiston (Idaho’s only seaport) is to develop and manage assets and services that stimulate job creation and trade while entrusted with protecting the quality of life for its citizens.
