Delaware River Ports Drumming Up New Business

The planned two-berth terminal at Southport in South Philadelphia, which will have an estimated cost of $300 million to $400 million, will have a target capacity of 750,000 20-foot-equivalent container units annually when fully built out. Together with the 450,000-TEU Packer Avenue Marine Terminal, Southport will give the Port of Philadelphia total capacity of some 1.2 million TEUs.
