ABERDEEN, Wash. – Pasha has officially shipped their 100,000th car, a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 8. Bill Cook, Head of Worldwide Logistics at Chrysler said Grays Harbor has played a big part in the company’s comeback “This port is very important for us, for Chrysler. There were a lot of people that were wondering whether Chrysler would be around into 2011. I think we proved the critics wrong, we can’t even keep up with demand from Asia for these vehicles.”
Mike Brown with the Longshoreman’s union agreed “It’s pretty hectic out here now with all the work, but we’re really diggin’ it.”
The Chryslers are shipped by rail from production facilities in the eastern United States to Western Washington, then shipped to ports like Japan, China, Korea, Australia and New Zealand.
