Why PortMiami?
  • $2 billion in infrastructure improvements! PortMiami is one of the most modern ports in the world. As the closest U.S. East Coast port to the Panama Canal and the Caribbean, Miami is the ideal gateway to the U.S.
  • PortMiami is emerging as a major transshipment hub for moving products to and from the Western Hemisphere
  • Customs and Border Protection has named Miami a Center of Excellence and Expertise for Agriculture and Prepared Products, recognizing our leading role in importing perishables from the Americas
  • Florida will soon be the third most populous state in the U.S., and the rapidly growing markets can be reached from PortMiami within 24 hours. Restored intermodal rail service will allow cargo moving through PortMiami to reach 70 percent of the U.S. population within four days
  • Miami has 228 million square feet (21 million square meters) of warehouse space already constructed, with much more in development. A large amount of this will be refrigerated, allowing storage of produce and other perishables


PortMiami Has Invested $2 billion in Infrastructure Improvements
  • Intermodal Rail Service (Fall 2013)
  • Four New Super Post-Panamax Cranes (Just in!)
  • Access Tunnel (Spring 2014)
  • -50 feet Deep Dredge (Summer 2015)

…all of which improve time to market and reduce costs of moving cargo
