Port Profile

The Port of Wilmington covers over 308 acres and is readily accessible to US North and East Coast markets via interstate I-95. Future expansion is planned to provide more storage capacity for existing and future commercial businesses.  Rail access to the Port is available via Norfolk Southern and CSX Transportation, with railcar loading docks located next to terminal warehouses.

The Port facilities include seven deepwater general cargo berths, a tanker berth, a floating berth for RoRo vessels on the Christina River, and an Auto & RoRo berth on the Delaware River. 

Cargo handling equipment includes: a new 100-ton mobile harbor crane and two multi-purpose gantry cranes, each with 50-ton capacity and one with 75-ton heavy lift capacity. All cranes are capable of high speed container operations and the handling of breakbulk, bulk and heavy lift cargoes.  


Dry storage facilities include: nearly 33 acres of open space used for RoRo, containers, steel, wind energy components, and lumber as well as 250,000 sf of dry warehouse space.


Temperature controlled facilities include: 6 separate warehouses aggregating approximately 800,000 sf of chilled and freezer storage space, and 16,000 sf of controlled atmosphere capability. This makes Wilmington the nation's largest dock side cold storage facility.
