VIDEO: PRPA Develops Southport Into Major Marine Rerminal (USA)

 

Officials of the Philadelphia Regional Port Authority (PRPA) announced that the agency has just completed a comprehensive new video production on the Port of Philadelphia that will be a central component of the Port’s marketing, promotion, and educational efforts.

The video, to be launched on a variety of platforms, was produced by PRPA’s Marketing Department.

Philadelphia Regional Port Authority Chairman Charles G. Kopp said, “I believe the PRPA is about to embark on a golden age. Cargo volume has been increasing steadily at double digit growth for the past 4 years. The Delaware River is being deepened to 45’ which will allow larger ships to come to Philadelphia and increase cargo volume to an even greater magnitude. This will happen especially after the widening of the Panama Canal is completed in 2015 and more ships are routed to the east coast of the United States. And finally, the PRPA is developing Southport into a major marine terminal which will produce thousands of new jobs at the PRPA in the next 3-5 years. The PRPA’s future indeed looks very, very bright.”
