PortMiami sees uptick in cargo traffic, with CMA CGM NABUCCO moving more than 4,500 TEUs
The CMA CGM NABUCCO slipped into Government Cut this afternoon and headed to its berth at PortMiami. The 8,488 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) container ship is part of the AL6 Amerigo Mediterranean-U.S. east coast service. The vessel is scheduled to move more than 4,500 TEUs while on port. Some commodities include construction materials, household goods, and perishables.
“The cargo uptick we’re seeing from the European region gives us confidence that Miami-Dade County’s economy is recovering,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “We’re moving in the right direction.”
“Miami-Dade County’s economy is on the rebound,” said Commissioner Rebeca Sosa, Chairwoman of the Tourism and the Ports Committee. “We thank our cargo partners for continuing to work with PortMiami moving goods from ship to shelf.”
