JAXPORT is Florida’s largest container port, one of the nation’s busiest vehicle-handling ports and is recognized throughout the industry for award-winning customer service.
GLOBAL SHIPPING OPTIONS
The port offers worldwide cargo service from dozens of ocean carriers, including direct service with Asia, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South America, the Caribbean and other key markets.
The federal project to deepen the Jacksonville shipping channel to 47 feet will offer the largest container ships calling on the U.S. East Coast unobstructed access to the port’s terminals.
Containers: JAXPORT now offers expanded options to Asia with service from the world’s three largest ocean carrier alliances: Ocean Alliance, THE Alliance and 2M.
Autos: An additional, dedicated auto terminal under construction will expand vehicle-handling capacity by 25 percent.
JAXPORT and its maritime partners handle a variety of cargo including containers, automobiles, Ro/Ro (recreational boats and construction equipment), dry and liquid bulks, breakbulk, oversized, heavy lift, military and specialty cargoes.
JAXPORT’s connections include three U.S. interstates (I-10, I-95 and I-75), and 40 daily train departures via CSX, Norfolk Southern, and Florida East Coast Railway. JAXPORT’s Intermodal Container Transfer Facility allows for direct transfer of containers between vessels and trains.
Florida is the nation’s third most populous state in the fastest growing region of the nation, and more than 70 million consumers live within a one-day truck drive of JAXPORT. Jacksonville is also home to the widest shipping channel in the Southeast U.S., wide enough for two ships to pass at the same time.
JAXPORT is home to one of the nation’s highest capacity weight-bearing docks and has the highest and widest cargo clearance available for port access by rail on CSX’s national system: 20 feet high and 13 feet wide.
AWARD-WINNING FOREIGN TRADE ZONE
JAXPORT’s Foreign Trade Zone No. 64, which spans more than 5,000 square miles within Northeast Florida, helps shippers save time and money by streamlining customs clearance.
ROOM TO GROW
Northeast Florida offers more than 120 million square feet of distribution center and warehousing space in close proximity to the port, and at a lower average square foot cost than the region’s closest East Coast competitors.*
JAXPORT is the only U.S. East Coast port with on-dock LNG fueling capabilities. Four LNG-powered vessels are homeported at JAXPORT and multiple LNG liquefaction and storage facilities are located in and planned for Northeast Florida.
JAXPORT supports a variety of community initiatives geared towards educating the transportation and logistics leaders of tomorrow, taking care of those in need in our community, championing environmental stewardship, and ensuring port-related opportunities are available to all.
A PLAN FOR THE FUTURE
The vision of JAXPORT’s Strategic Master Plan is for Northeast Florida to be a principal hub of the nation’s global logistics, trade and transportation network.
