Nuclear Reactors Top Dubai Ports' Cargo List

Nuclear reactors are among the most significant U.S. exports shipped out of five of the six ports slated for takeover by a Dubai company next week.

According to U.S. Transportation Department numbers cited Thursday by Newsday, the two "top products" shipped in and out of the Ports of New York and New Jersey are "mineral fuel [and] nuclear reactors." The New York-New Jersey ports handle 4,862 ships each year.

The Port of Baltimore processes 1,747 ships each year, where the top two products, according to Newsday, are "vehicles [and] nuclear reactors."

The Port of Miami unloads 1,247 ships annually. There the two top products are "apparel [and] nuclear reactors."

The Port of New Orleans processes 4,612 ships each year, where the top cargo is reportedly "machinery [and] nuclear reactors."
Of the six ports slated for takeover by Dubai Ports World, only Philadelphia does not count nuclear reactors as one of its "top products," with "precious stones [and] mineral fuel" leading the cargo list there.

Shipping numbers cited by Newsday are for 2004.
