Hybrid meeting attracted over 80 participants from among multiple stakeholders
GT USA Wilmington hosted a kick-off meeting to mark the start of the
Port’s Winter Fruit Season, with over 50 people attending the Port of Wilmington in Delaware, USA, in person, and a further 30 participating online, the event provided a platform for all partners to discuss any changes for the upcoming season’s programme.
Running from December 2021 through May 2022, the season is a peak time for the South American fruit growers, so to ensure everyone is on the same page is vital to a successful season.
During the event presentations were given by key members of GT Wilmington staff from operations, accounting, and safety departments, along with presentations from representatives of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Port Authorities, the US Department of Agriculture, and Global Reefers. “We, here at the Port of Wilmington, are definitely ready for what we hope is a highly productive and busy six months,” commented Joe Cruise, CEO, GT USA Wilmington.
