First plywood cargo arrives at the Port of Wilmington
GT USA Wilmington (GTW), the US arm of Gulftainer, a privately owned independent port operator headquartered in the UAE, recently received its very first plywood vessel at the Port of Wilmington.
CMPC, a multinational corporation, produces and markets wood, pulp, packaging products, household and non-household sanitary protection products, and tissue paper. Its products are renowned for their quality and competitiveness and for being manufactured from entirely renewable sources.
The vessel transporting this new cargo to Wilmington was the Interlink Celerity, which originated in Chile. The discharge of over 15,000 tons was completed safely and efficiently. GT Wilmington is now looking forward to the second plywood vessel for CMPC, which is scheduled to arrive in early December.
“Our goal is always to deliver tailor-made services to our individual client requirements by providing creative, flexible cargo-handling, terminal and warehousing solutions. We believe we achieved this goal with this initial shipment. We are looking forward to developing a long-term partnership with CMPC,” asserted Joe Cruise, CEO, GT USA Wilmington.
“We are very pleased with the way that our relationship is developing with GT Wilmington and with how this first shipment has been handled. We feel confident that this will be the start of a long-lasting alliance,” observed Vic Moreira, Logistics Manager, CMPC USA.
“The GTW folks are very accommodating and easy to work with,” noted Mike Gerace, CEO, M. Gerace Enterprises.
