Putting the Yokohama RR42 to the Test at the Port of Tacoma

With over 95% percent of imported cargo entering the U.S. arriving by ship, ports play a critical role in the global supply chain. It’s at ports where containers from around the world are transferred for further distribution via inland transportation such as rail and truck and vice versa.
