The Port of Seattle says it will welcome Pacific International Lines (PIL) to its harbor in February. PIL’s new Asia Pacific Northwest Service (ANW) will call Terminal 30 in partnership with China Shipping Container Lines’ (CSCL) and United Arab Shipping Company’s (UASC) existing joint service.

The service will have a port rotation of Nansha/ Hong Kong/ Yantian/ Ningbo/ Shanghai/ Pusan/ Seattle/ Vancouver/ Nansha. The service gives fast and reliable transits for imports to the PNW and beyond, while providing expanded options for exports.

PIL is the second major shipping line in the past year to choose the Port of Seattle as its primary U.S. Pacific Northwest port of call.  The company was incorporated in 1967 and is headquartered in Singapore.

About the Port of Seattle
Founded in 1911, the port owns and operates Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, four container cargo terminals, two cruise ship terminals, one grain terminal, a public cargo terminal, four public marinas, and manages a number of real estate assets for financial return and economic advantage.
