The vision of the Jacksonville Port Authority is to be a major economic engine in Northeast Florida by continuing to be a premier diversified port in the Southeastern United States, with connections to major trade lanes throughout the world.
JAXPORT is a full-service, international trade seaport in the Southeastern United States. JAXPORT owns and manages three cargo terminals in Jacksonville, Fla., including the Blount Island Marine Terminal, the Dames Point Marine Terminal and the Talleyrand Marine Terminal.
JAXPORT and its maritime partners handle containerized cargo, automobiles, recreational boats and construction equipment (Ro/Ro), dry and liquid bulks, breakbulk commodities, and over-sized and specialty cargoes. JAXPORT’s three marine terminals handled a total of 8.2 million tons of cargo and more than 600,000 vehicles in 2012, making JAXPORT one of the largest import and export automobile centers in the United States.
JAXPORT terminals feature 18 container cranes, on-dock refrigerated & freezer warehousing, Foreign Trade Zone status and outstanding intermodal connections.
Strategically located at the southeastern corner of the United States, Jacksonville offers the best intermodal connections in the South Atlantic.
More than 55 million consumers are within an eight-hour truck drive of all three JAXPORT marine terminals, each of which is minutes from an Interstate highway. More than 100 trucking and drayage firms operate in and around Jacksonville’s port to take advantage of the city’s highway system, anchored by I-95, I-10 and I-75. In addition to Jacksonville’s two Class I railroads — Jacksonville-based CSX Corporation and Norfolk Southern — and one regional railroad, Florida East Coast Railway, JAXPORT’s terminals offer on-dock and near-dock rail access.
With the ability to serve as a hub for inbound and outbound cargo and for distribution of goods throughout the U.S. Southeast and beyond, it is little wonder that Jacksonville is developing a reputation as America’s Logistics Center.
