New Business in Bellingham

The enhanced tractor tug Lindsey Foss recently assisted the 590-foot cargo ship African Egret into its berth at the Port of Belling Shipping Terminal. The ship loaded about 5.2 million board feet of logs for China, the first cargo of wood handled at the Port of Bellingham in nearly two decades. In China, the wood will be used for housing construction and furniture production. The port hasn’t handled wood products since the Georgia Pacific pulp mill there shut down in 2001.
