PortMiami: The Expansion Continues
PortMiami is Miami-Dade County’s second largest economic engine, contributing $27 billion and more than 207,000 jobs to South Florida. Its sustained performance propels Miami to be recognized as the Cruise Capital of the World and as a Global Gateway.
Thanks to PortMiami’s partners and Miami’s business community, in fiscal year 2015-2016, the Port experienced its best cargo performance in 11 years handling approximately 1.03 million twenty-foot equivalent units. Additionally, it had a new world record in cruise passenger traffic with nearly 5 million multi-day passengers; but its future looks even brighter.
After completing more than $1 billion of capital improvements on the cargo side, including a water depth of -50/-52 feet, super Post-Panamax gantry cranes, intermodal on-dock rail connections to the national rail system, and a fast access tunnel linked to the U.S. interstate highway system, ocean carriers are using PortMiami as their preferred global gateway.
Today we are happy to report that the world’s largest container shipping alliances call at PortMiami, solidifying its position as a world class global gateway.
On the cruise side of the business, PortMiami recently launched a capital infrastructure program for the restoration and modernization of its cruise facilities to accommodate the industry’s newer generation of cruise ships solidifying the Port’s position as the Cruise Capital of the World.
At PortMiami excellent service is paramount. We are constantly looking at ways to improve operations and surpass customers’ expectations. We understand the importance of making an outstanding first impression. For this reason, PortMiami cruise facilities are the most modern in the world, providing quick and easy boarding and departure experiences for its passengers.
At PortMiami we are proud of what we have accomplished and stand ready with guaranteed fast and reliable service.
