Over the next two days, the Northwest Seaport Alliance (NWSA) will unload more than 4,800 vehicles off Glovis Composer, a roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessel. 

The ship arrived from Korea and berthed at Terminal 7 in Tacoma.

“During this call, the South Harbor will receive 4,818 vehicles in addition to six high and heavy cargoes, making this the single-largest auto discharge off a vessel in the Port of Tacoma’s history,” NWSA said.

Last year, discharges from the same vessel averaged around 1,825 cars.

Featuring a length of 200 meters and a width of 32 meters, Glovis Composer has a total capacity to transport 6,400 vehicles.

Owned by Bermuda-based shipping company Ship Finance International, Glovis Composer was built at Minami Nippon shipyard in Japan in 2005.
