Harbor Freights is getting ready to get into the ghost ship business with the launch of its first cargo ship in the United States, the “ghost ship” harbor freight.
The first “ghost” container ship in service to the Port of Portland, Oregon, will arrive in Portland at the end of April, bringing the port’s total number of cargo containers and shipping containers to almost 500.
The ship will carry over 150,000 packages, more than half of them cargo.
The port has already been seeing the economic impact of the surge in container shipping, with container ship sales increasing nearly 35% year over year.
Hear more from Port of Maine Executive Director Bill McCarty about the port and cargo shipping in this exclusive interview with EW.HARMONY REYES: How do you make sure your cargo ships are ready for the rigors of port and freight?BILL McCARTY: It’s a combination of our two priorities.
On the one hand, we want to have the right facilities to meet the challenges of our environment and meet the needs of our customers, so we have a very good capacity and we have the best equipment.
On that, there are a number of things that we need to be careful of.
We have the most modern, most state-of-the-art facilities that we can put on the ships, so there’s no question that we’re getting the best of both worlds.
On a very small scale, it’s really the ability to put a crew on a ship that has been designed with the most efficient and efficient facilities, so it’s a very high bar.
We’re really not making any excuses for it, because we have that capability, so to speak.
We just need to make sure that we have enough crew on the ship.
So we’re working very hard with our suppliers to make the ships as comfortable as we can make them, and to make them as durable as we possibly can.HAYDEN WALSH: What’s the biggest challenge facing port businesses in the face of the rising popularity of container shipping?BARRY JOHNSON: Port businesses in Oregon have to compete in a changing industry.
They’re trying to meet increasing demand in a rapidly changing industry, and they have to be able to meet these changing business demands.
It’s an important challenge for port businesses, but it’s also an important opportunity for port to compete.
We think that we are in a great position to compete for the growth in this industry, because our port facilities are extremely modern and have all of the modern equipment that you would need to meet this demand.HALF MOON MUSEUM: What are some of the best things about the harbor?BEN JOHN: The harbor is the best place to have a brewery in Portland, because it’s the best location in the state for port.
It has the best quality, and it has the most breweries in the country.
So it’s kind of the perfect place to brew a beer.
There are some great breweries, and there are some breweries that are underutilized.
There’s also a ton of waterfront space, which is great for breweries, as well.
We also have some beautiful restaurants.
We’ve got some amazing restaurants that have opened up around the state.
It is a great place to be in Portland.
The harbor has also had some very good growth in the last couple of years.
It just keeps on getting better, so the next few years we are looking forward to a very strong year in Portland and a strong year for the harbor.HANNAH JOHANSSON: We’ve also had a lot of growth in our harbor.
There have been more people moving into the port, so when we see that we get a surge in activity, we know that it’s coming back, so our employees are well prepared.
They’ve been training for this year.
We are just seeing a lot more people come in from the ports.
We can see them all the time, so people are very excited to be out there.HILLARY CLARK: It is so cool.
It reminds me of my grandmother’s cottage.
The people are so nice and you can feel the warmth.
There is so much activity.
It makes you feel like you are in the world.
You can actually feel it in the harbor, but you’re really in a place where it’s warm.
It feels like a tropical beach.
I like the harbor because I like to be on a little island and look out at the ocean.
It helps you relax and be in the water.
The bay is wonderful.
I just love the bay.HOMELAND FOUNDATION: We are thrilled to be partnering with Harbor Freighter and will continue to offer a wide range of shipping services to the Portland and Portland metropolitan area.HONOLULU SHIP: HONOLU Shipyards is excited to join the Harbor Freighters’
