Mitsubishi plans to export about 400 Eclipse sports cars to China and South Korea during its current fiscal year, and 500 units the following year. The vehicles are built at Mitsubishi’s manufacturing plant in Illinois, transported by rail to the Port of Tacoma’s Marshall Avenue Auto Facility and then loaded to Wallenius Wilhelmsen Line auto ships.

“Tacoma has been a very positive port for us to operate out of,” said Rober Casebolt, Manager of National Port Operations for Mitsubishi Motors North America . “They are very accommodating, customer oriented, and we have a great relationship with them both on the import https://www.seattletradealliance.com/files/blog/and the export side.”
