PHILADELPHIA, June 12, 2014 (Local News) -The sun is shining again on the Delaware River over a fleet of rising commerce scattered from Tioga in Port Richmond down to Wilmington.

Palaima's company, Delaware River Stevedores, is the largest employer of unionized longshoremen in our ports. It operates Tioga Terminal which brings in an array of products, from perishables likes fruit, cocoa and cattle to steel and plywood, delicate machinery and equipment.
