Please join the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina for a webinar from 11 a.m.-noon July 15 providing an overview and update from North Carolina Ports.

NC Ports facilities are strategically located on the East Coast with two waterside terminals, the Ports of Wilmington and Morehead City, and one inland port, Charlotte Inland Port. All the ports are within 700 miles of 70% of the U.S. industrial base.

North Carolina state ports are less congested and offer best-in-class waterside and landside efficiencies. In fact, the Port of Wilmington offers the fastest truck turn times on the East Coast. It is their mission to link the state’s consumers, business and industry to world markets and serve as magnets to attract new business and industry to the state of North Carolina. Port activities contribute statewide to more than 87,700 jobs and $678 million each year in state and local tax revenues.

The EDPNC is pleased to welcome the featured speakers for the webinar: Aaron Brott, Senior Director, Key Clients & Trade Development at NC Ports, and Ben Massa, Senior Director, Carrier and Trade Development at NC Ports.  Aaron and Ben have decades of experience in logistics, freight, and terminal operations and marketing.  They will be offering an update from NC Ports, as well as providing an opportunity for attendees to ask questions.
