Gulftainer Says Chiquita Will Remain at Port of Wilmington for Another Decade

GT USA Wilmington, the U.S. arm of Gulftainer, announced Chiquita Fresh North America will remain for another decade at the Port of Wilmington, thanks to efficiency gains

Gulftainer said the relationship“has already begun bearing fruit for the company, the port and the wider state of Delaware,” a release stated.

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 (longshoremen) 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.”
