Have you given any thought to the opportunities that might be available for you with local government? Perhaps not. Emerging businesses are often so focused on federal contracts that they really haven’t given local work much thought. Well, it might be time to reconsider. The Port of Tacoma, right here in the Puget Sound region is a perfect opportunity to explore.
Who is the Port of Tacoma?
The Port of Tacoma was created in 1918 by Pierce County voters. It stands on it’s own as a separate entity from the Pierce County or the City of Tacoma.
The Port’s Mission statement” “To deliver prosperity by connecting customers, cargo, and community with the world ”, is well realized … we are fortunate to have an active Port that provides local business with such a robust portal to markets and products.
