Abstract

"Focus: Transportation & Trade" piece on container shipping operations in the Port of Portland, with a focus on ways to increase capacity, especially short-sea shipping. The long delayed Ocean Gateway terminal on the east end of Portland Harbor was intended to allow for an expanded cargo operation at the International Marine Terminal (IMT). Other factors limiting the growth of container shipping in Portland are an imbalance between exports and imports, a low volume of products moving out of Maine by ship, and the need for shipping companies to make daily runs. With comments by Jack Humeniuk of P&O Ports; Jeff Monroe, Portland's transportation director; and P. D. Merrill, the former owner of Merrill's Marine Terminal.
