Philadelphia continues to play a major role in assisting international supply chains with alternate strategies to overcame worldwide logistics challenges.
“We have been working on attracting a service like Indus 2 for a while,” said Sean Mahoney, PhilaPort’s Director of Marketing. “Our terminal operator, Holt Logistics, has really done a great job with the customer base and made this service a reality.”
