North Carolina Ports has hired Brian E. Clark, an industry veteran and the former Managing Director for APM Terminals at Port Elizabeth, as its new Chief Operating Officer.

Clark will put over twenty years of expertise in the maritime industry into improving terminal operations at the Port of Wilmington and Port of Morehead City.

He will oversee the execution of a $150 million infrastructure investment plan over the next few years, which includes new Panamax ship-to-shore cranes, a turning basin expansion project, various berth improvements, and the expansion of the container yard.

The Port of Wilmington has one of the highest crane productivity rates on the US East Coast with more than 45 moves per hour in each of its post-Panamax cranes.

On the ground, its truck turn times are approximately 18 minutes (from pedestal to pedestal) for a drop-off and an average of 30 minutes for drop-off and pickup.

During his time with APM Terminals, Clark was responsible for directing the overall operations of a 350-acre marine terminal with on-dock rail facilities, handling almost 500 vessel calls, 800,000 marine lifts, 150,000 intermodal moves and in excess of 1,000,000 gate moves annually.

Paul J. Cozza, Executive Director, said: “We have already established a great on-terminal experience for our customers at North Carolina Ports.

“As we continue to grow, it is absolutely vital to our success to reinforce the operational efficiencies we’ve become famous for.

“Brian’s key leadership role will help us navigate that growth tomorrow and into the future.”
