Car shipping at the Port of Philadelphia
Car shippers use the Port of Philadelphia to ship cars into the US and from the US to overseas countries. The Packer Avenue Marine Terminal (PAMT), which is the busiest facility in the port, is a container handling facility equipped with state-of-the art equipment. Also, it has one Ro/Ro berth. So, carriers use both container ships and Ro/Ro ships when shipping cars to or from Port of Philadelphia.
Car shipping companies use road transport to ship cars from inland locations to the port. They easily access the Packer Avenue Marine Terminal via the interstate highways I-95 and I-76. These are the same roads you should use should you choose to drive the car to or from the port.
The port of Philadelphia has an Auto Processing Facility adjacent to the PAMT. In this facility, new automobiles are inspected and cleared for use in the US. If there is a need for modification or accessorizing before delivery, it can be done at this facility.
As it is located along the East Coast, the port is convenient for shipping cars to or from Europe, South America, Africa, and the Near East.

Finding a Port of Philadelphia automobile shipper
This port is a common destination for car carriers. However, not all companies can ship from overseas locations to the port. Similarly, not all car carriers transport automobiles to your overseas destination.
You also need to establish the experience and reputation of the car carrier you work with. Look for online reviews of the company and look for customer testimonials on the carrier’s website. Many positive reviews indicate that a company is experienced, professional, and provides quality services.
Also, remember to check the safety records of the company. The US DOT’s FMCSA regulates the car shipping industry. Using the SAFER website, clients can check the safety rating and other relevant records of an auto shipper.
