The port of Wilmington is located at the confluence of the Christiana and Delaware Rivers midway between New York City and Washington, D.C. Situated on 308 acres, with direct access to Interstates 95 and 495 and being served by 2 Class 1 railroads, Norfolk Southern and CSX, cargo moving through the Port has overnight access to more than one third of US and Canadian consumers. Taking advantage of its’ prime geographic location, Murphy Marine Services and the Port handle over 1.5 million tons of refrigerated produce annually. The Port receives bananas from Central America; grapes, plums, peaches, apricots, berries, apples and pears from Chile; apples and kiwi from New Zealand; pears and apple juice concentrate from Argentina; orange juice concentrate from Brazil; and clementines from Morocco. To ensure that these products stay fresh prior to delivery, the Port boasts the nation’s largest dockside refrigerated warehouse facility with over 800,000 square feet with a temperature range of 50f/10c to 32f/0c. We are a designated Foreign Trade Zone with operations 7 days per week. Since 1980, we have handled over 1,000,000 import and export automobiles.  In excess of 300,000 pallets and 500,000 tons of various break bulk cargos, such as wire rod, steel and lumber are handled each year.
