Millennium Bulk Terminals-Longview is an operating bulk materials port on the Columbia River in Longview, Washington. The site was originally developed in 1941 to house a smelter for Reynolds Aluminum. For years, the smelter and adjacent facilities were the engine of industry in Cowlitz County.
Decades later, our goals are clear: we are cleaning up this brownfield industrial site and redeveloping it into a safe and productive port facility. We are excited to begin work on a larger and more productive export terminal that will revitalize trade along the Columbia River. In doing so, we will create family-wage jobs for residents of Southwest Washington and generate millions of dollars in tax revenues that support communities throughout Washington state.
