Port Everglades tops one million TEUs

PRESS RELEASE

November 03, 2014: Broward County's Port Everglades exceeded one-million TEUs for the first time in the South Florida seaport's history, according to preliminary fiscal year 2014 statistics.

During FY2014 (October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2014), Port Everglades reported a preliminary, unaudited total of 1,013,344 TEUs moved through the port, with a nearly even split between imports and exports.

"This is a huge accomplishment for our seaport and a credit to our customers who continued to build their businesses through the global recession with an eye towards the future," said Port Everglades Chief Executive & Port Director Steven Cernak.

Cernak attributed the milestone to continued growth in existing and new containerized cargo services. New services include King Ocean opening a second terminal yard and consolidating services from Terminal Island in Miami, and a full year of the Grand Alliance's (Hapag-Lloyd and its partners NYK Line and OOCL) GAX service to Northern Europe.

At the crossroads of North-South and East-West trade, Port Everglades is Florida's leading container port and serves as a gateway to Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia.

Located in South Florida in the cities of Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood and Dania Beach, Port Everglades is in the heart of one of the world's largest consumer regions, including a constant flow of visitors and up to a combined 110 million residents and seasonal visitors within a 500-mile radius.

Port Everglades has direct access to the interstate highway system and the newly opened 43-acre Florida East Coast Railway (FEC) intermodal hub, and is closer to the Atlantic Shipping Lanes than any other Southeastern U.S. port. Ongoing capital improvements and expansion will ensure that Port Everglades can continue to handle future growth in container traffic. A world-class cargo handling facility, Port Everglades serves as an ideal point of entry and departure for products shipped around the world.
