NC Ports’ terminals resume full commercial operations

Wilmington, N.C. – North Carolina Ports’ terminals in Wilmington and Morehead City resumed full commercial truck operations on Monday following Hurricane Florence which forced the terminals to close on Thursday, September 13. Both the Ports of Wilmington and Morehead City reopened to employees and vessel operations late last week.

“North Carolina Ports’ facilities in Wilmington and Morehead City suffered some damage during Hurricane Florence. Our employees along with local, state and federal agencies worked around the clock to get our waterside terminals up and running as quickly and safely as possible. We cannot thank them enough for their hard work throughout the recovery process,” said NC Ports Executive Director Paul J. Cozza.

The Port of Wilmington accepted its first vessel post-storm last Thursday. The Yang Ming Uniformity – operating on THE Alliance EC2 service linking Asia to Wilmington – arrived to the Port just after 7:00 p.m. Meanwhile, the Port of Morehead City accepted its first vessel on Wednesday and three additional vessels on Thursday.

“The arrival of these ships to their respective ports marks the return to normalcy after such a devastating storm across eastern North Carolina. NC Ports looks forward to getting its terminals back on track for its customers,” added Cozza.
