Founded in 1918, the Port serves greater Pierce County by promoting trade, supporting family-wage jobs, and improving the environment. Today, more than 42,100 jobs and nearly $3 billion in economic activity in Pierce County depend on the Port of Tacoma.

We are committed to strong fiscal stewardship of public funds, active marketing and development of Port assets to promote business growth and jobs, and environmental remediation of Port-owned properties.

Through The Northwest Seaport Alliance, a marine cargo operating partnership of the Tacoma and Seattle ports, our trade customers move goods from all corners of Washington and the United States through the Tideflats to people all over the world.

We value our relationships with the community, customers, the Puyallup Tribe of Indians, municipal governments, Joint Base Lewis–McChord (JBLM), and our regional economic development partners.
