THE North Carolina State Ports Authority moved 1,459-TEU of reefer cargo through the Port of Wilmington in April, setting a new record for refrigerated container volume, reports Mumbai's Stat Trade Times.

'It has long been North Carolina Ports' goal to become one of the premier cold ports for shippers and these numbers are evidence of that mission,' said North Carolina Ports executive director Paul Cozza.



'Our record-setting April highlights our expanding perishables portfolio as we have quadrupled refrigerated container volume over the last five years.'



NC Ports continues to experience a healthy flow of refrigerated cargo to global markets despite the recent volatility due to the coronavirus pandemic. FY20 year-to-date (July-April) volumes are up 20 per cent over FY19.



Annual growth from FY14 to FY19 is up more than 225 per cent. Pork and poultry products continue to be the leading export while bananas are the largest refrigerated import cargo.



This latest accomplishment comes on the heels of the opening of a new refrigerated container yard last month. The US$14 million project increased the number of on-terminal refrigerated container plugs from 235 to 775 with the ability to expand to more than 1,000 plugs through Phase 2 of the project.
