Assessment of Options for Reducing Truck Queues at Port of Seattle Container Terminals (2010)

This project was undertaken for the Port of Seattle to identify options for reducing truck queues related to port terminal operations which affected traffic on City of Seattle streets in early 2010. Causes of congestion at the terminal gates were analyzed, and operational and infrastructure strategies for resolving the problem were identified based on experience at other ports. Recommendations for action were developed, taking into account the unique characteristics of the Port of Seattle and potential impacts on port competitiveness.
