    Miami Port

  • Description: The Port contributes over $17 billion annually to the South Florida economy and helps provide direct and indirect employment for over 176,000 jobs. One of our primary goals is to promote growth in both our cruise and cargo industries in Miami-Dade County and to make sure that every port user can conduct business safely, effectively and efficiently.

    According to PIERS Global Intelligence Solutions, the premier source of data collection for the most comprehensive database of cargoes moving through ports in the U.S., Latin America and Asia, Miami is once again the No. 1 containerized cargo port in Florida and No. 11 in the nation.

    For the past two years, the Port of Miami has retained all its carriers, and in fact has added several new services to its roster. The world's largest carriers are attracted to Miami as it is anticipated to become a major player in the partial realignment of Asian trade from the U.S. West Coast to the East Coast following the 2014 Panama Canal Expansion. The Port of Miami is scheduled to bring online $1 billion in new infrastructure assets that are specifically designed for - and timed with - the Panama Canal expansion. Among the projects currently in progress are: dredging the main channel harbor to -50 feet depth to accommodate the world's largest container vessels; providing direct highway access via a tunnel for trucks carrying cargo; and building an intermodal and distribution network in cooperation with strategic partners such as the Florida East Coast Railroad (FEC).

    "As a result of these improvements, the Port of Miami expects to double its cargo throughput capacity in less than 15 years, " said Port Director Bill Johnson. "It is an exciting time to be in the port business in Miami, as the infrastructure investments we are making today are laying the foundation for tomorrow's job and business opportunities."
