Did you know that the Port of Portland is one of the leading vehicle distribution hubs in North America? We always love working with the Port, especially when they fly us around the city for aerial footage and let us bring out the motorized slider for some awesome time lapse shots!
The port of Portland is dredging the Columbia river by Longveiw and the Cowlitz river. Port of Portland owns and operates the Dredge Oregon which maintains the Columbia River navigation channel, Dredging the channel provides ships with a safe and reliable transit route. The dredge operates around the clock, typically from June through January each year, working from the Columbia River bar near Astoria and inland to Portland Harbor .
In May 2010, a majority of Port of Portland employees were consolidated into a new Port headquarters building at Portland International Airport. The building, shaped to echo the hull of a ship or the wing of a plane, sits on top of a 3,000-space long-term parking garage at PDX; both the office space and parking garage were designed to be models of sustainable design and construction. The building was recently awarded Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, Platinum Certification and has received numerous local national and international awards for its environmental features.
