Superships

March 28, 2014

If you think the ships calling on the Port of Tacoma are large now, wait until you see what's coming. A new breed of so-called super ships are on their way to west coast ports as shipping companies and manufacturers look for more efficient ways to bring goods to market. On the next edition of Northwest Now, we're taking a look at the super ships, riding-along with the crew of the Henry Foss, and talking to the experts about what upgrades and modifications have to occur to prepare for a new class of vessels.

Program is available online after broadcast.
