Located near the navigable end of the Delaware River, the Port of Philadelphia falls within Philadelphia’s municipal boundaries. It contained several marine terminals—each with their own separate capability. For example, there is the Tioga Marine Terminal which handles the fruit business of Chile, as well as containers, breakbulk cargo, and steel. There is also the Packer Marine Terminal which handles containers, frozen meat, fruit, and more.
The other piers handle everything from cocoa products to newsprint to lumber.
