NOW DEEPENING

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.

MOVING MILLIONS AND GROWING

More than 1 million containers (TEUs) move through Jacksonville's public and private marine terminals annually.

WIDEST SHIPPING CHANNEL

Jacksonville boasts the widest shipping channel in the Southeast U.S., wide enough for two ships to pass at the same time.

INTERNATIONALLY RANKED FTZ

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 has more than 120 million square feet of distribution center and warehousing space within close proximity to the port.

FAST REACH TO U.S. SOUTHEAST CONSUMER MARKET

Florida is now the nation’s third most populous state – and more than 60 million U.S. consumers live within a one-day truck drive of Jacksonville’s port.

OUTSTANDING INTERMODAL CONNECTIONS

JAXPORT terminals are serviced by three U.S. interstates (I-10, I-95 and I-75), and the city has 36 daily trains via three railroads: CSX, Norfolk Southern, and Florida East Coast Railway.

BALANCED IMPORTS/EXPORTS

The port’s equal balance of imports and exports provides backhaul opportunities, saving money and maximizing transportation costs.
