A U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman said federal agents are still going over the ship's cargo and planning to move it from its berth at the terminal.
Members of the ship's crew have been taken into custody by federal authorities and have been charged.
Agents from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Coast Guard, and the Philadelphia Police Department are assisting in the massive operation.
Federal agents are still going over the ship in a search for any other drugs or contraband.
In March, agents seized 450 bricks of cocaine, weighing nearly 1,200 pounds with an estimated street value of $38 million from the Port of Philadelphia.
The cocaine was found inside a shipping container aboard the MSC Desiree, a Portugal-flagged cargo ship that had traveled from the Netherlands to Peru and also had stops in Panama and the Bahamas. The cargo ship was last seen in Callao, Peru — the largest port of entry to Peru — less than a day ago.
