Jacksonville, FL: Florida’s Number One Container Port

Posted by Infra on Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

Jacksonville Florida, home to one and a half million people, is Florida’s number one container port.

The city’s location along the nation’s rail and highway network make Jacksonville a natural gateway.

The Jacksonville Port Authority, known as JAXPORT, offers shippers access to more than 120 million square feet of distribution center and warehousing space, including 31 million cubic feet for refrigerated cargo.

JAXPORT’s dedicated sales team offers customized shipping solutions with unique opportunities for cross docking, transshipment and distribution.

Strategically located in the southeastern corner of the United States, JAXPORT offers service from more than 36 daily trains aboard three rail lines.

The port’s equal balance of imports and exports means containers arrive and leave loaded.

JAXPORT’s terminals have been enhanced by nearly 600 million dollars in recent infrastructure investments in everything from cranes to docks to rail and a newly authorized project to deepen the federal shipping channel.

With a channel wide enough for two ships to pass at the same time and the best intermodal connections in the south Atlantic, it’s no wonder more and more shippers are choosing JAXPORT.
