Chrysler to ship from Grays Harbor

Chrysler is going to start using the Port of Grays Harbor as its export site for the Pacific Rim.

Port Executive Director Gary Nelson said the agreement with Chrysler Group LLC will mean an additional vessel call per month at the port, as well as the shipment of up to 2,000 autos out of Grays Harbor to destinations such as Japan, Korea, China and Mexico.

Nelson said the first vessel call should be Jan. 24 and that the agreement will mean more longshore jobs and more work for Pasha Stevedoring.
