About SSA Marine

Founded by Fred R. Smith in 1949 as Bellingham Stevedoring Company, SSA began their first cargo handling operations in a small corner of Washington State. 

Driven by a pioneering spirit, the family-owned company saw steady growth over the years, expanding up and down the West Coast to operate a significant market share of the major international terminals in the eastern Pacific. 

Today, SSA Marine has become a global enterprise spanning more than 250 locations across five continents.

They continue to broaden the reach by developing new locations and upgrading existing facilities, providing some of the most technologically advanced facilities in the world.

With marine terminal and rail yard operations in more than 250 strategic locations around the world, SSA Marine is unmatched in skill, experience and productivity.
