Port of Mobile welcomes new container depot

The Marino Group has recently announced the opening of a new 34-acre container depot at the Port of Mobile.

The new depot will reportedly support container and intermodal traffic through the port and the US Gulf.

The facility offers a range of services including container maintenance and repair, storage for loaded and empty containers, warehousing, chassis start-stop and repairs, pre-trips for grounded temperature-controlled units, and genset rental programs.

Effective immediately, the depot is fully operational.

David Miller, Senior Director of Operations at Marino Group’s Marine Repair Services-Container Maintenance Corporation (MRS-CMC), emphasized the Marino Group’s commitment to bolstering its position in the Gulf by establishing a cutting-edge depot in Mobile.

“The new depot has ample capacity for future growth, top-of-the-line equipment, and a highly skilled team of professionals ready to serve the market,” said Miller.

Strategically located less than a mile from the marine terminals at 1251 Baker Street, the depot effectively addresses capacity issues at the terminals according to the Marino Group. To cater to the region’s trade requirements, the facility is equipped with load lifts, empty handlers, a chassis stacker and downstacker, and reefer plugs.

The Alabama Port Authority announced record-breaking numbers for 2022, with 563,191 TEU handled at the Port of Mobile.

This marks the ninth year of double-digit growth since 2009 and an 11 per cent increase in volumes over 2021.
