Port of Wilmington

Wilmington is one of the few South Atlantic ports with readily available berths and storage areas for containers and cargo.”

One of our community’s most valuable assets is our proximity to the Port of Wilmington.  Very few communities in the nation can offer the same combination of available, inexpensive land and almost immediate access to an uncongested deepwater port.

The Port of Wilmington is owned and operated by the North Carolina State Ports Authority, and offers terminal facilities serving container, bulk and breakbulk operations. Its 42-foot navigational channel offers customers additional vessel capacity. Readily available modern transit and warehouse facilities, state-of-the-art post-Panamax container cranes and support equipment, and the latest in cargo management technology provide a broad platform for supporting international trade to the fast-growing Southeast U.S. market. CSX Transportation provides daily service for boxcar, tanker and general cargo services.

The Port is a C-TPAT Certified location and is designated as Foreign Trade Zone 66.
