THE Northwest Seaport Alliance has started accepting proposals to develop a 50-acre deep-water cargo facility at Terminal 46 at the Port of Seattle that would have convenient access to major road and rail infrastructure.

The property is suitable for marine cargo operations, logistics and other maritime-supported activities, reported the American Journal of Transportation.



Terminal 46 has a long history in the Pacific Northwest. As part of a realignment of cargo and infrastructure, including the authorisation to modernise Terminal 5, Terminal 46 is no longer being utilised for international container cargo operations.



The NWSA and the Port of Seattle have approved an agreement that allows for the conversion of Terminal 46 to two distinct operations. The NWSA, through this request for proposal (RFP), is pursuing development of a 50-acre cargo terminal that could include marine-industrial support businesses. The marine cargo terminal will include 1,400 feet of the west-facing berth with a depth of 50 feet.



Separately, the Port of Seattle is in the process of developing the remaining 29 acres into a single-berth cruise terminal to accommodate the growing demand for its Alaska cruises.
