TACOMA, WA, July 9, 2014 (The News Tribune) -A Western Washington-based shipping line will move its major Puget Sound port of call back to the Port of Tacoma in late July after an absence of 31 years.

Westwood Shipping Lines, headquartered in Puyallup's South Hill Business and Technical Center, will shift its maritime operations from the Port of Seattle's Terminal 5, where it has called since 1983 when it left Tacoma.

The Westwood move was announced in an unusual joint announcement from the ports of Tacoma and Seattle. The two ports in recent decades have been fierce rivals in winning business from shipping lines.
