Cargo Vessel Set to Arrive at the Bellingham Shipping Terminal

The 590-foot cargo ship MV Diana Bolten will arrive at the Bellingham Shipping Terminal on October 3rd.  Local longshore union (ILWU) workers will offload cargo each day from early in the morning until late at night and community members should expect extra lights associated with this activity.  Noise is not anticipated to be a significant impact because most of the heavy equipment used to offload the ship will be stationed inside the Shipping Terminal warehouses.  The MV Diana Bolten is scheduled to depart Bellingham by the end of the week.


“The Bellingham Shipping Terminal is open for business” said Port Commission President Dan Robbins.  “The Port has made significant investments to modernize this job-creating facility and bring back working waterfront jobs which were lost when Georgia-Pacific shut down its pulp and paper mill.  We are excited to welcome the MV Diana Bolten to our Port and look forward to regular shipping activity in the years to come.”


The MV Diana Bolten is the first regular cargo shipment to the Bellingham Shipping Terminal in over 17 years.
