Pacific Terminal was proposed to be located at Cherry Point north of Bellingham
in unincorporated Whatcom County.
The regulatory review process was led by Whatcom County, the state
Department of Ecology and the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
The Gateway Pacific Terminal was proposed as a multi-modal, deep-water
terminal to provide storage and handling for the export and import of up to
54 million metric tons per year of dry bulk commodities. Application
materials for the proposed terminal described operations that included 18
additional individual train trips (nine round trips) per day traveling
In February 2017 Pacific International Terminals sent a letter to Whatcom County officials announcing it was stopping the environmental impact statement process for the terminal and withdrawing its applications.
