Millennium Bulk Terminals-Longview (MBTL) is a bulk materials port on the Columbia River in Washington.

For more than 60 years, the site operated as an aluminum smelter and the dock was used to import alumina and materials for smelting. For the past several years, MBTL has focused on maintaining and upgrading the existing facilities, including a major clean-up project related to decades of aluminum smelting. The works have already improved the safety and condition of the site for our staff while MBTL works to meet government requirements and community expectations.

In addition to its existing bulk handling facilities, MBTL is building a world-class, international coal port facility that will help the state of Washington solidify its position as a leader in international trade. The first stage will result in a coal export terminal with approximately 25 million metric tons per year capacity. The second stage will take total export capacity to about 44 million metric tons per year.

The proposed new terminal facilities will include a rail yard to house trains arriving from western US coal mines, and two new docks to create a modern and efficient port capable of receiving, stockpiling, blending and loading coal for export. At full build-out, two vessels per day are anticipated to depart for offshore markets.
