Jacksonville is one of just three U.S. Southern ports to receive the 2012 Quest for Quality award based on five categories: ease of doing business, value, ocean carrier network, intermodal network, and equipment and operations.
JAXPORT received the highest score among Southern ports in the ease of doing business category. The port operator categories are divided into Northeast & Mid-Atlantic, Gulf Coast, West Coast, Great Lakes and Southern regions.
