Ports PhilaPort has enacted an aggressive timetable
“As we densify and increase container capacity at PAMT, we needed more land to grow,” stated Jeff Theobald CEO of PhilaPort.
“This land, located less than a ½ mile from PAMT, allows us to enact a major component in our plan. It enables us to relocate warehousing adjacent to our main container operations.”
PhilaPort has enacted an aggressive timetable to grow Port cargo volumes.
This new land will play a critical role and directly augment the $300 million Port Development Plan set by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, the Board and the CEO of PhilaPort. ■
