Special Project Cargo

The Port of Wilmington's strategic location at the heart of the U.S. East Coast, with excellent rail and road connections, makes it an ideal port and distribution hub for special project cargo. The Port is comprised 308-acres, with close to 4,000-foot marginal wharf and 38-foot MLW water depth.  Ample berth space and 24/7 work ability allow maximum flexibility for special project cargo shippers and carriers.

The Port's modern cranes have a maximum lift capacity of 100 tons for heavy lift, which is helpful for loading and unloading of special project cargo.

Last and not least, Delaware’s Department of Transportation and Department of Public Safety and Homeland Security facilitates timely and cost effective truck permitting and police escort services for quick and cost effective movement of this project cargo through the State and onward to its final destination

In the past few years, the Port has been the port of choice for special project cargoes including: Orbital Sciences' rocket booster cores for the “Antares” program, parts for power generating plants, wind turbine blades, large generators, construction equipment, and ship building materials.
