Our Mission

Oregon’s 23 ports provide recreational, commercial, and economic services to residents and businesses in Oregon and beyond, serving as state, national, and international transportation gateways.  They are a key component in sustaining Oregon’s economy and quality of life, supporting thousands of family wage jobs.  One out of six Oregon jobs is directly or indirectly tied to cargo, recreation, industrial, commercial or other activities at Oregon’s ports.
