GT USA Wilmington confirms new partnership

[ April 24, 2019   //   ]

GT USA Wilmington, the US arm of Gulftainer, the world’s largest, privately owned, independent ports and logistics company, has welcomed the commencement of a new partnership with Chiquita Fresh North America, which will see the continued presence of the company at the Port of Wilmington through the next decade.
The relationship has already begun bearing fruit for the company, the port and the wider state of Delaware. The new levels of performance are expected to benefit all parties with increased efficiency, flexibility to meet customer demand, and improved time to market.
Peter Richards, Group CEO of the Gulftainer Group of Companies said “We’ve witnessed an outstanding start to our new relationship with Chiquita. We have worked in close cooperation with all parties to be able to achieve higher levels of performance. However, we could not have achieved such significant gains in productivity through this transition period without the help of our partners, the ILA workforce and our port employees all working in unison. Their efforts during these early operations have been carried out with the utmost professionalism and we are proud to have built these strong partnerships so early in our tenure at the Port of Wilmington.”
It is expected that operations will continue to be streamlined and enhanced as GT USA recently announced that it will soon take delivery of new cargo handling equipment as part of the modernization and improvement program at the Port.
