MSC Sofia Celeste: 8819 TEU

• SeaLand Stadt Gera: 1296 TEU

Before, Stadt Gera would have been one of the standard sized vessels to call the Port of Philadelphia. The arrival of the Neo-Panamax Sofia Celeste certainly shows the continued progress of the Port of Philadelphia and where the future is headed. With the completion of the Delaware River deepening in 2017, and the next steps of the Southport Marine Terminal project in the near future, things can only get better in Philadelphia!
