The NWSA ranks highest on US West Coast, second overall in Quest for Quality awards
The Northwest Seaport Alliance ranked highest on the U.S. West Coast and second overall in the West Coast category in Logistics Management’s 2017 Quest for Quality awards, the company said in its press release.
Winners were selected by the magazine’s readers—the buyers of logistics and transportation services.
Readers evaluated ports using five criteria: ease of doing business, value, ocean carrier network, intermodal network, and equipment and operations. A port had to receive at least 5 percent of the category vote to win.
The Northwest Seaport Alliance was one of only three West Coast ports to reach that threshold.
