The South Jersey Port Corporation is a vibrant public enterprise with a network of tenants,
private business and public and private facilities that create a dynamic, powerful economic engine in the City of Camden with benefit
for the entire South Jersey and Delaware Valley regions. To say that the Port Corporation is a profound economic pillar of Camden as the
city begins a new era focused on reconstruction and revitalization is almost an understatement.
In 2002, a study of the economic impacts of the Port shows that the South Jersey Port Corporation
is responsible for more than 23,000 jobs and generates more than $202 million in annual personal income in the Camden/South Jersey
region, including direct personal income in excess of $97 million.
Business and tax revenue generation is equally impressive. The impact study reported more than $161 million in annual business
revenue, more than $13.5 million in local purchasing, and tax payments each year of almost $21 million derive from activity at the Port.
Today the Port Corporation remains focused on the changing trends of the maritime industry, the needs of its host city, and a future
that holds the promise of accomplishments equal to and greater than those of the past three decades. It is paramount that the Port
Corporation continues to make the maximum impact it can achieve for the economy of Camden and South Jersey. For this reason it is vital
that the Port Corporation, in cooperation with the State of New Jersey, continue to evolve with the maritime industry, meet the needs of
its customers, and build for a bigger, stronger future.
For more than three decades the South Jersey Port Corporation has shown that it is a responsive agency able to react quickly to new
business opportunities. Now, more than ever, continued investment and reinvestment in the South Jersey Port Corporation will serve New
Jersey and its southern region, and be a key component in the recovery and revitalization of Camden.
