Summary

The Philadelphia Regional Port Authority (PRPA) is planning to expand the Port of Philadelphia in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the US.

The project involves the expansion and improvements at the Port of Philadelphia comprising three components.

The first component will see PRPA investing US$200 million in the Packer Avenue Marine Terminal adding four new electric post-Panamax container cranes, the relocation of warehouses, and the construction of new warehouses and 45-foot berths at the terminal.

The investment will increase the container-handling capacity of the terminal from 400,000 Twenty-foot Equivalent Unit (TEU) containers a year to 900,000 TEUs immediately and 1.2 million in future.

The US$90 million second component will expand the Port’s automobile import/export facility at Southport.

The third component valued at US$12 million is for warehouse improvements at the Tioga Marine Terminal. The second warehouse at Tioga will be converted into a food-grade warehouse, allowing the Port increase its wood pulp volumes to meet the demands of Pennsylvania companies requiring wood pulp. Improved rail access and the purchase of a second mobile harbor crane will also add capacity for Tioga Marine Terminal.
