About PortMiami
Powering the Economy

PortMiami is Miami-Dade County's second most important economic engine contributing $27 billion annually to the local economy and supporting more than 207,000 jobs in South Florida. It is recognized as the Cargo Gateway of the Americas.

Miami's unique geographic position makes the Port easily accessible to Caribbean and Latin American markets, as well as those of Asia and Europe by way of the Panama Canal.

PortMiami is also known worldwide as the Cruise Capital of the World, welcoming more cruise passengers to its terminals than any other port in the world.
