DPH is parent to Seaonus Holdings LLC and Portus Holdings LLC, of Jacksonville, Florida, and has been expanding its break bulk and mixed cargo terminal portfolio along the US Eastern seaboard. Liberty Terminals will be operated as Seaonus Stevedoring-Savannah LLC.
“Liberty Terminals operates on the oldest continuous maritime facility on the east coast. In 2008 the berth was refurbished with a $14 million dollar investment, creating a dynamic breakbulk facility with a 1300 ft. linear deep-water berth and a 100 ft. apron. Liberty Terminals is an experienced breakbulk and bulk stevedore, occupying 24 acres on a private terminal in Savannah for the past 20 years. The facility includes a 144,000 sqft. warehouse and off dock laydown areas serviced by CSX Rail,” DPH Stated.
At Charleston, Liberty’s facility occupies 750 ft. of berth space at Pier Juliet with a 34 ft draft, open and covered storage and rail service from CSX and Norfolk Southern.
The transition to new ownership will begin this month. “We are excited to work with the current staff. Liberty’s customers will continue to receive the same high-quality service and dependability to which they are accustomed, but begin enjoying the depth and experience of the entire DPH team.” said James Dillman, DPH CEO.
