​Port of Seattle

Committed to opportunity, equity and livable communities

Founded in 1911, the Port of Seattle is a special-purpose municipal corporation serving the citizens of King County; its mission is to create good jobs here and across the state by advancing trade and commerce, promoting manufacturing and maritime growth, and stimulating economic development.

Our vision is to add 100,000 jobs through economic growth led by the Port, for a total of 300,000 port-related jobs in the region, while reducing our environmental footprint. We are committed to creating opportunity for all, stewarding our environment responsibly, partnering with surrounding communities, promoting social responsibility, conducting ourselves transparently, and holding ourselves accountable.

The Port of Seattle is a leader in moving people and cargo across the country and around the world. With facilities and property ranging in scope from a half-acre park to one of the largest airports and container terminals on the West Coast, we maximize the public assets in our portfolio with an eye toward best uses and environmental sustainability.

Long Range Plan coverLong Range Plan

Beginning in 2017, the Port of Seattle is using a rolling five-year Long Range Plan to focus our efforts to best accomplish this job growth and the other 25 year strategic objectives established by the Commission in the
Century Agenda.

What you see here is our first Long Range Plan for the years 2017 through 2021. It connects the goals of the Century Agenda to strategies, objectives, actions, and performance measures focused in five areas: aviation, maritime, economic development, the environment, and high-performance organization.

The Plan is organized around the strategic objectives identified in the Century Agenda and those pertaining to organizational excellence.

The Long Range Plan ensures that all Port divisions have specific, achievable actions to keep up with the dramatic growth in our industries and create economic opportunities for all in our community.
