NOTE: You must be registered to attend the site visit on your Summit registration – no exceptions. Specific questions are required for security purposes at both locations and must be submitted in advance to the venues. This is a first-come, first-served opportunity as limited space (35 participants) is available on the trolley and during the tours. We ask that all participants ride on the trolley to guarantee each tour remains on time. All participants must have their driver’s license with them at the Port.
ABOUT THE TOUR.
Following the USCG Sector North Carolina visit, the trolly will take participants to the North Carolina Port to learn more about the the unique port systems in the state. The Port of Wilmington has four post-Panamax container cranes. Not on this tour, but will be discussed, is the Port of Morehead City, just four miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Both offer extensive warehousing and open storage, and both provide easy access to interstate highways and major railroads. Port customers experience the fastest turn times on the United States East Coast. And the Port’s expanding storage capabilities, including Wilmington’s 101,000-square-foot, on-terminal cold storage facility, can accommodate more customers than ever.
