Chiquita to ask for more time at Port of Gulfport

Posted: Updated:
GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Chiquita's contract at the Port of Gulfport expires next month. However, WLOX News has learned Chiquita needs a bit more time to pack up its containers and move to New Orleans. 

Chiquita has asked for a lease extension that runs through the end of the year. But the port director says because of expansion plans at Chiquita's current dock, he's not sure commissioners will agree to a six month extension. 

The Chiquita lease will be taken up at the Port of Gulfport's June 26th meeting.
