FCA US to Begin Shipping Vehicles from Wilmington, Del., Port

February 26, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

FCA US LLC announced today that it will begin exporting vehicles from the port of Wilmington, Del., in March 2015.

Vehicles from FCA North America (formerly Chrysler Group) plants in Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, and Ontario, Canada, destined for the Middle East will be routed to the Autoport terminal beginning March 1, where they will be loaded on vessels managed by Liberty Global Logistics and Hoegh Autoliners. Previously, these vehicles were shipped out of the port of Baltimore.

“FCA US made the decision to use the Wilmington port based on Autoport’s expertise in handling Middle East exports for other OEMs as well as a strategic alignment with deep sea ocean carriers,” said Bill Cook, Head of Logistics and Customs, FCA US. “The expansion of our export operations is important to FCA US as we continue to increase distribution of finished vehicles worldwide.”

The first vessel is scheduled to depart Wilmington in mid to late March.
