Port Services

Ed’s Moving & Storage can offer its commercial customers a level of complete port services and shipping services that truly elevates us into a full-service, multifaceted commercial moving company.

As a bonded and certified U.S. Customs Warehouse Service, Ed’s Moving & Storage can take care of moving a wide range of goods. In addition, our warehouse is located within the free trade zone.

That’s especially convenient for our Tacoma-area industrial customers, given that Tacoma Port activity is even larger than that of Seattle’s. In fact, the Tacoma Port is one of the largest container ports in North America, owing to the area’s naturally deep-water harbor.

Tacoma Port is also part of the Northwest Seaport Alliance and boasts numerous terminals, on-dock rail services, and warehousing facilities. For these reasons as well as others, Ed’s Moving & Storage prizes the port for its unmatched ability to move our customers’ inventory from outside of the country into the USA.

After your goods come into Tacoma Port via sea container, Ed’s takes possession of the sea containers and brings them into our warehouse. We’ll usher the inventory through the customs process, while also handling your forwarders. In addition, we can palletize your business or personal inventory for overland transport, ensuring that the delivery process is a smooth one.
