JAXPORT CEO Eric Green’s response to today’s announcement that the federal government is awarding nearly $32.4 million in funding to the Jacksonville Harbor Deepening project:

“These dollars signal that the federal government believes in our deepening project and has confidence in our ability to provide a return on this investment. We appreciate the support of our elected representatives in Washington, Tallahassee and here at home who work tirelessly to ensure JAXPORT remains globally competitive, continues to generate high-quality jobs for our citizens and offers opportunity for generations to come.”

A record-setting 1.3 million containers moved through the Port of Jacksonville last year, making it Florida’s largest container port complex.

During the first six months of fiscal year 2018, JAXPORT recorded 27 percent growth in total container shipments over the same period last year.
