TW Mission Vision Values Final large.gif


Tidewater's mission and vision is empowering our people to deliver optimal solutions and to connect customers to local, regional, and global markets. We do this by engaging our core values: safety, employees, integrity, customers, environment, quality and reliability, resiliency, diversity and inclusion, innovation, and community. 


Tidewater was founded in 1932, and has evolved into a multi-commodity transportation and terminal company serving the diverse and evolving transportation needs of the Pacific Northwest, Canada, and beyond.

The people of Tidewater respect the privilege of operating on the waterways of the Pacific Northwest. Together we accept responsibility for adhering to these guiding principles:

  • We will maintain safe operations which meet or exceed all regulatory and industry established standards.

  • We will operate in a manner which protects our communities, our environment, and our customers.

  • We will strive to maintain a leadership position within our industry through constant innovation and improvement.

  • We will earn the trust and respect of our customers and our communities by maintaining the highest levels of service, professionalism, ethics, and integrity.

  • We will achieve excellence by accepting responsibility and accountability for the actions of ourselves and our co-workers, while fostering a working environment of growth, encouragement, and respect.

We at Tidewater are proud of our heritage, and we are committed to operating in a manner that enhances the livability of the Pacific Northwest for future generations.


Tidewater is proud to carry on its long standing commitment to charitable giving and non-profit support. In addition to our corporate charitable giving program, Tidewater has an employee matching program that is designed to acknowledge and support our employees’ commitment to charitable giving and helps their donations make an even bigger impact to the non-profits that are important to them.
