The Port of Wilmington, Delaware is a full-service deepwater marine terminal handling 400 vessels per year with an annual import/export cargo tonnage of more than 5 million tons. Today, Delaware's port is the busiest on the Delaware River, North America’s top banana hub, the nation’s leading gateway for perishable cargo and the chief hub in the US East Coast for livestock exports. Located at the confluence of the Delaware and Christina Rivers, 65 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, the Port is owned and operated by the Diamond State Port Corporation (DSPC), a corporate entity of the State of Delaware. Since its inception in 1923, the Port of Wilmington has been a major mid-Atlantic import/export gateway for a wide variety of maritime cargoes. Delaware’s port is 308 acres, and owns and operates seven deepwater general cargo berths, a tanker berth, and a floating berth for RoRo vessels on the Christina River, as well as an Auto & RoRo berth on the Delaware River. Storage capabilities include the nation’s largest on-dock cold storage complex, 250,000 sf of dry warehouse space, and nearly 50 acres of open space used for automobiles, containers, steel, lumber, wind energy components and project cargo.
