The Port of Wilmington, Delaware has entered the livestock trade in 1987 loading live cattle to Venezuela, Egypt, and the Canary Islands. Today, the Port handles dairy cows destined to the Middle-East, Turkey and Russia.

The Port, a LEA member, is well equipped to handle your cattle shipments. We have six "open" berths (35-38 ft. deep) with 33 acres of truck staging area for transfer of livestock from trucks to ship and load feed and hay for the voyage. Delaware's Port is also located less than 90 miles from PA Holstein Association's quarantine facility, and less than 1/2 mile from the I-495 ramp. Our location allows for non-congested mid-Atlantic distribution and reduces the inland transportation costs from your farm to the Port.

Last and not least, the Port of Personal Service offers full logistics coordination service to cattle exporters.
