It will allow the Holt organization to move containers off the terminal, rapidly unload, and return them directly to the marine terminal — or move them inland to be loaded with exports — further expanding opportunities for local and regional commerce. "The investments of the public-private partnership between Holt Logistics, Greenwich Terminals, PhilaPort, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have put Packer Avenue Marine Terminal in a position to scale and PhilaPort The PhilaPort Distribution Center will provide 200,000 square feet of much-needed near-dock warehouse space.
