Uwe Schulz, who has been active in the Delaware River maritime community for some 35 years, will be honored with the Spirit of the Port award by the Seamen's Church Institute of Philadelphia and South Jersey at a industry-wide luncheon on April 10, 2008. Schulz is President of the Ports of the Delaware River Marine Trade Association (PMTA), an organization of steamship agents, ship owners and direct employers that negotiates labor contracts in the Ports of Philadelphia, Camden and Wilmington, Delaware, with the International Longshoremen's Association (ILA).

He is a co-founder of the Maritime Stakeholders Group (MSG), a group that represents labor, management and other affiliated maritime businesses that promotes the maritime interests in the Delaware River Region in preserving maritime land for maritime use instead of residential and other commercial uses. An active member in the Philadelphia Maritime Community, Uwe has served as President of the Board of Governors of the Philadelphia Maritime Society, Board of Directors of the Maritime Exchange, Seamen's Church Institute and Chilean/American Chamber of Commerce and as a Trustee of the PMTA-ILA Funds. A seafarer himself, Schulz graduated with honors from the State University of New York Maritime College and joined Local 88 of the Master, Mates and Pilots. He served as a deck officer, including Master in the American Merchant Marine. He was also a Commissioned Officer in the United States Naval Reserve. Following a stint with Waterman Steamship Company, Uwe came ashore in 1972 for a 23-year tenure in various capacities with the former Associated Container Transportation (ACT) Pace/Blue Star Line in Port Elizabeth and then to Philadelphia, where he settled.
