“We are honored and humbled to receive this award from our friends at the African-Caribbean Business Council,” said Leo A. Holt, President of Holt Logistics. “Port jobs, in particular container jobs, are well-paid, family sustaining careers that very accurately reflect Philadelphia’s diversity. Our ability to create these jobs here at home is only as strong as our ability to increase trade with all nations who wish to do business in the American economy. We are proud to lay claim to bringing many unique products to market through the Port of Philadelphia, and will continue to explore all corners of the globe to find new opportunities for trade. On behalf of the staff, stakeholders and family of Holt Logistics Corp, I extend a heartfelt thank you to the ACBC for bestowing us with this honor.”
