FCA switches ports

by David Zatz on

Mopars will start leaving the country through the port of Wilmington, Delaware, instead of Baltimore, Maryland, starting on March 1, 2015.


The change affects cars leaving for the Middle East; they will now use Liberty Global Logistics and Hoegh Autoliner ships leaving from the Autopost terminal in Wilmington (not far from the former Chrysler plant in Newark, Delaware).  The company’s head of logistics said the decision was made because of Autoport’s expertise; the port is also closer to the assembly plants.

The first ship to bear Mopars to the Middle East from Wilmington is scheduled to leave “in mid to late March.”
