With an in-depth look at each port, including details on the return of container service to Portland's International Marine Terminal after a hiatus; Eastport Port Authority's exploration of container options like wood pellets and the expansion of imports; and the state's plan to turn a portion of Sears Island into a deep-water cargo port.
