General Cargo


The Port of Wilmington's location in the heart of the U.S. Eastern Seaboard along with its excellent rail and interstate connections makes it an ideal port and distribution center for general cargo. The Port is comprised of 308-acres, with close to 4,000-foot of marginal wharf and a 38-foot MLW water depth.  The 9 available berths allow maximum flexibility for cargo shippers and carriers.

The Port also offers two 50-Ton shore side gantry cranes with heavy lift capacity up to 75 tons which is helpful in loading and unloading of cargo.

In the past few years, the Port has handled many special project cargoes including parts for power generating plants, wind turbine blades, large generators, construction equipment and ship building materials.
