Port of Seattle
Port of Seattle is a port district in Seattle, Washington.
The Port of Seattle does not move coal, but coal shipments come through the larger Seattle Custom District by rail on their way to Canada's Westshore Terminals for export to Asia. About 4 million tonnes of coal passed through the district in 2014, all of which was steam coal from the Powder River Basin.
