Major US Meat Exporter Switches from West Coast to Port Philadelphia

One of the largest meat companies in the world has switched significant export volumes from US West Coast ports to Port Philadelphia. Exports of high quality meat, sourced from throughout the USA, are now moving through the Port Philadelphia due to West Coast port congestion.

U.S. cargoes to Korea, Japan and China are now moved from through the Port of Philadelphia. Already a major import hub for this company, the Port does not suffer from the congestion of larger US ports.

Port of Philadelphia is the #1 meat import port in the USA and is increasingly the port of choice for US meat exports.
