Shipping Cars To or From Port of Wilmington

A great percentage of imports and exports are traded in the US through the Atlantic Ocean. The majority ports in the East Coast region act as the backbone of such trading activities, making them the primal entry points for a majority of the cargo coming into the US from Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Car shipping firms rely on such coastal ports to facilitate their services, especially when shipment involves imports and exports in bulk. Among the major ports on the East Coast that A-1 Auto Transport Inc. relies on is the Port of Wilmington.

The history of the Port of Wilmington

The deep water port was founded in 1923 and has been under the ownership and management of Diamond State Port Corporation. It is located just at the confluence of the Delaware River and the Christina River, about 65 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, in Wilmington, Delaware. It measures a total of 308 acres in total, a large enough area to handle high tonnage every day. It initially was a fresh fruits and petroleum products port, but its proximity to the Atlantic opened up more opportunities. The strategic location created a new opportunity for the port to expand its product portfolio.

How it came to be a major vehicle shipping port

Europe and the Middle East together form one of the largest car manufacturing regions in the world. With a great percentage of their market being the US, this opened up possibilities of shipping vehicles into the US through the already existing Port of Wilmington, owing to the direct route it provides from the Atlantic. Vehicle shipments started mostly as imports, and over the years, the port has expanded its facilities to also offer vehicle exports from the US. Shipping cars to or from Port of Wilmington is as it is today, thanks to its history.

Port Facilities of Port of Wilmington

Along the Christina River lies a 3,435-foot wharf face, with depths of an averagely 35 to 38 feet. The Christina River offers a total of 9 berths to the Port of Wilmington. Seven of these berths are dedicated to heavy cargo handling which we utilize for shipping cars to or from Port of Wilmington through the containerized methods. These berths also handle general cargo, such as fruits. The remaining two berths along the Christina River are used as petroleum and Ro-Ro facilities. A-1 Auto transport utilized the Ro-Ro dedicated berth for shipping cars to or from Port of Wilmington through the Roll-on/Roll off method.
