Located within the Pacific Northwest, Portland's metropolitan area has a population of more than 2.4 million people. Like most of the West Coast, Portland was not settled until the 1800s and was known as simply ‘The Clearing.’ However, with its easy access to the coast, Portland soon grew from a small stopping place, en-route between Oregon City and Fort Vancouver, into a shipping nexus for transporting goods and lumber. During the last few decades, Portland underwent an industrial boom, and today, it ships around 13 million tons of cargo around the world.
