Problems in the Port of Bridgeport
- Longshoremen are selling a terminal that they bought in the 1990s to keep a company from going out of business.
- A company that operates a terminal in Bridgeport is moving to Philadelphia because Pennsylvania has offered tax breaks that Connecticut has not offered
- Another reason the company is moving is because the harbor in Bridgeport needs to be dredged
- there's also no rail access to the harbor; a rail line, makes it easier to move goods after they arrive
- the company seems to be a big banana importer (Bridgeport is known as a center of banana imports).
- steel imports have also dropped a lot
- the terminal area might be turned into condos or a mixed use development
