ABERDEEN, Wash. - The Port of Grays Harbor yesterday celebrated the first shipment of Chrysler vehicles setting sail from Grays Harbor to Asia on the MV Positive Passion. Executive Director at the Port of Grays Harbor Gary Nelson said "It's a great day for the Port, and the Community here in Grays Harbor to have this new line of business"

With a couple hundred cars on the lot, the Port held a ribbon cutting ceremony at the dock of Terminal 4 "They just started between Christmas and News Years started arriving, but there's more and more cars coming in every day, I think in February we're expecting to ship about two thousand cars".

The Port plans to place bids for GM imports, next quarter. Nelson said the port expects about two vessel calls per month from Chrysler when the exports hit full speed.
