Larry Larson, commissioner of the Port of Longview in Washington state, recently announced his retirement.

According to the port, Larson was the longest serving longshore commissioner in the history of the West Coast. He was appointed in June of 1978 and has served the port for 29 years as a commissioner. In addition, he worked as a registered longshoreman for over 40 years. During his tenure, the port transitioned from handling mainly forest products exports and bulks to the handling of steel and project cargos, as well as wind energy and domestically barged cargos.

"Larry's retirement will be a tremendous loss to our commission," adds Walt Barham, port commission's president. "His vast knowledge of the port industry and his prior active involvement in the moving of marine cargo will be missed."
