Soon thereafter, Westport departed Seattle, bound for Chile on her maiden voyage. Upon her arrival at Arica, she loaded a cargo of nitrates and got underway again on 8 November 1918--three days before the armistice ended World War I. Sailing via the Panama Canal, the ship arrived at Baltimore, Md., on 28 November and discharged her cargo. She then took on board railroad supplies for shipment to the American Army in France and departed Baltimore on New Year's Day 1919.
The freighter made port at Brest on the 21st and unloaded. She then took on board 1,438 tons of Army return cargo before sailing on 15 February for home. Reaching Baltimore on 14 March, Westport discharged her cargo there before heading for New York City on 24 March. Arriving at New York two days later, Westport was subsequently decommissioned, struck from the Navy list, and returned to the USSB on 31 March 1919.
