SSA Marine is one of three companies bidding to take over port operations at Ketchikan’s downtown cruise ship docks. The Seattle-based company largely operates cargo ports.

Mark Knudsen is an executive with SSA Marine, and he stopped by KRBD’s studios to talk about his company’s bid. We started the interview by asking Knudsen about his company’s experience working with the cruise industry.

KRBD also sat down with port bidder Global Ports Holding. The third bidder, Ketchikan-based Survey Point Holdings, has so far declined an interview.
