PortMiami is in transition. A number of large capital projects -- comprising the most ambitious improvement programs in its history -- will transform the Port and its facilities over the next several years. The Port with its state, federal and private-sector partners, is investing more than $1 billion in major infrastructure improvements to support future growth of both its cargo and cruise businesses.
The Miami metropolitan area is the most densely populated urbanized area in the southeastern U.S. with major cities in the region reachable by rail within 10 hours to three days. This proximity to the majority of the region's consumers and exporters makes PortMiami the most efficient entry point for goods flowing to and from the Southeast U.S.
