N.C. Maritime Study


As the expansion of the Panama Canal nears its scheduled 2014 completion, and the U.S. recognizes the increasing importance of exports to national and regional economic growth, the State of North Carolina has developed the North Carolina Maritime Strategy.

This study evaluated the current and future role the maritime industry plays in sustaining North Carolina’s efforts to create jobs and strengthen the economy across the State. Initiated by the Governor’s Logistics Task Force (GLTF), the North Carolina Maritime Strategy took a fresh look at North Carolina’s maritime assets and the needs for improvement to ensure that our State remains competitive in the future.

A Maritime Strategy Executive Team oversaw this process, evaluated the results and provided an objective technical and economic analysis.
