Since wood pulp bound for Maryland paper mills was the first cargo to arrive at the Port in 1923, forest products have been a mainstay cargo at Port Wilmington. Today, we serve as an important port and distribution hub for exports of Kraft liner board and newsprint to Central America.
Shippers through Port Wilmington take advantage of our mid-Atlantic location with overnight access to 2/3 of U.S. and Canada’s markets; excellent facilities for deep draught bulk vessels specializing in the transport of forest products; two state-of-the-art dry cargo warehouses totaling 250,000 sf, with rail sidings; and mostly, our productive and skillful workforce that can seamlessly handle the various cargo.
As a distribution center for forest products, this Port has made available “E-port Wilmington,” its exclusively designed logistics software package, that our customers may utilize for real-time inventory management.
This software enhances inventory management capabilities for forest-products and improves shipping and receiving coordination.
