Vancouver trucking firm buys lot at Woodland port

Deal fills second industrial park in area since May


LONGVIEW — The Port of Woodland’s 50-acre Schurman Way Industrial Park officially is full.

Director Jennifer Wray-Keene said officials closed on a 2-acre undeveloped parcel Wednesday with Vancouver-based company Taylor Transport for just under $400,000.

The update follows the May announcement that all the lots at the port’s Centennial Industrial Park were sold.

Wray-Keene said Taylor Transport, which is owned by parent company MMR Enterprises, also recently purchased land near Pekin Road in Woodland.

Some of the revenue will be used to pay off $1.8 million in debts from prior land acquisitions and construction, and the rest will be used for construction at Rose Way Industrial Park, according to a port press release.

The latest land acquisition is on the corner of Schurman Way and Guild Road. The parcel stood vacant for more than 20 years, according to the port.

The Schurman Way Industrial Park’s last sale was the 24-acre transfer to Brown Strauss Steel for $4.3 million in May.

The port sold the last of its Centennial Industrial Park lots in May as well. The port celebrated a groundbreaking June 4 of another site called Rose Way Industrial Park.
