PhilaPort welcomes Warnow Sun

Atlantic RoRo Carriers’s (ARRC) vessel, Warnow Sun, has completed its maiden call at the port of Philadelphia’s Tioga Marine Terminal. 

The vessel is part of ARRC’s fleet of multipurpose vessels, capable of handing breakbulk, project cargo, vehicles and containers, operating between St. Petersburg, Russia; Antwerp, Belgium; and the USA’s East and Gulf coasts. 

“The ARRC service and the types of cargo it transports is exactly in our wheelhouse,” said Robert Palaima, president of Delaware River Stevedores (DRS) and operator of Tioga Marine Terminal. “This service requires a diverse set of skills and includes everything from heavy lift know-how to the more straightforward container operations.”

ARRC announced its intention to add Philadelphia to its liner service in June, as HLPFI reported here

“We looked at various ports and terminals in Northeast USA,” said Rick Shannon, president of ARRC. “The Tioga Marine Terminal, DRS and PhilaPort teams offered the right mix of capabilities and facilities, equipment and support for us to grow our cargo volumes. We are working closely with our partners at the port of Philadelphia and Tioga Marine Terminal on warehousing operations and we now have the right partners for this expansion.”
