Gov. Wolf applaudes new shipping service connecting Philadelphia to ports in the Gulf of Mexico (WPVI)

Governor Tom Wolf is applauding a new shipping service connecting Philadelphia with two ports in the Gulf of Mexico.

Wolf was among those on hand to welcome the SeaLand "Atlantico" in Penn's Landing Wednesday.

The shipping line made its first call to Philadelphia two weeks ago.

And it will continue making weekly calls here.

Supporters say the service will have a big environmental impact, open new routes, and create more job opportunities.
