MacMillan-Piper was among three companies recognized by the Port of Tacoma for facilitating strong, supportive relationships with customers and tenants and for their outstanding contributions to port business and the Pierce County community.
With a presence in Tacoma since 1985, MacMillan-Piper currently handles bulk and provides warehouse transloading services at two facilities in the Tacoma Tideflats. In the past year, the company doubled its warehouse transloading space to 202,000 feet to support handling bulk cargoes. MacMillan-Piper also reduced the number of idling and draying trucks by unloading import containers and loading them with exports in the same location, helping to improve air quality.
