Horizon extends Tacoma agreement
Horizon Lines extended its agreement last week to call at APM Terminals in Tacoma for at least six more years. Horizon's prior agreement was scheduled to expire Dec. 10.
This new agreement confirms continued stevedoring and terminal services in five North American cities, including Tacoma. In the Pacific Northwest, the shipping line considered several options, including moving operations to the Port of Seattle.
The new agreement keeps about 150 terminal-related jobs in Pierce County, Wash.
