Port Of Gulfport Gets First Shipment For Nissan

The Port of Gulfport is handling its first large shipment for the Nissan plant in Canton.

The 4,000-ton shipment from Japan includes metal presses and heavy metal rollers that are used to form trucks, minivans and sport utility vehicles.

"This initial shipment demonstrates the variety of cargo that we're capable of handling, and we look forward to future shipments as a result of the Nissan plant," Port Director Don Allee told WLOX News.

Nissan also has the option to store up to 1,500 vehicles at the port.
