Millard Maritime & HELM Partner on US Bulk Fertilizer Imports

MarineLink.com
Thursday, December 05, 2013

Leading US Gulf Coast port and cargo solution provider, Millard Maritime®, & HELM Fertilizer Corporation, a major fertilizer distribution and marketing company for the Americas, have jointly agreed to import HELM products to the Millard Maritime facility in Theodore, AL from Trinidad and other ports around the globe.

The new agreement will take effect upon completion of an automated bulk storage warehouse. Currently, Millard Maritime unloads the imported fertilizer from the HELM vessel, stores it in shore-based tanks and then loads to rail, truck or barge for distribution to HELM’s customers throughout the Eastern U.S. This existing business, say Millard, will later expand to include additional dry fertilizer commodities by 2015.

Millard Maritime, owned by refrigerated warehousing and distribution solutions company Millard Refrigerated Services, operates a port near Mobile, AL that features a 1,600 ft. wharf, export and import capabilities and bulk, liquid and break-bulk loading/unloading with easy rail, interstate and barge access. Millard Maritime works with companies trading a wide variety of commodities and finished goods to efficiently transport their products to market here in the U.S. and around the world.
