Maine Port Official Sees Boost from New Container Ship Service in Portland
02/17/2013  

The state's efforts to make the most of its three deepwater ports got a boost Feb. 14.  Eimskip, of Iceland, announced it will be moving its existing hub from Norfolk, Virginia to Portland, Maine. The company says it will move at least 5,000 containers through the city's International Marine Terminal every year. Maine Port Authority Executive Director John Henshaw tells MPBN Morning Edition host Irwin Gratz that the number of containers passing through Portland could easily grow.
