I-495 Closure Update




New deal gives stability to Port
By Carl Kanefsky

A new deal in place will offer certainty from a key customer to the Port of Wilmington.

The Port has reached an unprecedented five year deal with Fresh Fruit Maroc, a Moroccan association of citrus growers and exporters.

The new agreement includes 10 to 13 ship arrivals at the Port each year during a season that runs from October through March. Shipments are expected to bring an annual volume of 35,000 metric tons of fruit.

The association began using the Port in 2000, but had always operated under short-term, and mainly one-year deals.
