Supply Chain Solutions Image

Southampton Terminal is owned and operated by Gulf American Line, an expert Company with over 30 years of experience in the shipping, freight forwarding, warehousing, consolidation, and transportation industry.  We employ close to 200 employees and have locations not only in the East Coast USA, but also have facilities throughout the Middle East.

Ahmed Singer, CEO of Gulf American Line and Southampton Terminal, opened his first office and warehouse in 1978, in New Jersey where he preformed freight forwarding and storage services to his customers.

  1. In 1994, Gulf American Line moved to a larger facility in Berkeley Heights, NJ where the company headquarters is now located.
  2. In 1997, our second warehouse facility was opened in Wilmington, NC, just ½ mile from the port of Wilmington.
  3. In 2005, to fulfill the gap in our presence along the east cost, we built Southampton Terminal on 18 acres of land in the Southampton Business Park in Courtland, Virginia. Located Strategically between Rt. 95 and the Norfolk Ports along Rt. 58 we are centrically placed to provide easy access to the port without the cost of being in Norfolk.  Our newest facility is ran by Sherief Singer, Vice President, and is opened for operations on March 10, 2008.

We are partnered with a Cold/Frozen Storage facility in Norfolk which services our customers who deal with food exports.  Southampton Terminal also has partners with trucking companies which has the best cost in the area for port drayage.

Southampton Terminal’s philosophy is to customize our company for our customers.  We are always open to new suggestions and projects which has been the Key to our success.
