Port Everglades launched an International Sister Seaports program in March 2007 and shortly thereafter signed on two seaports interested in becoming part of Broward County's international family. Today, Port Everglades has International Sister Seaport agreements with four seaports and a Memorandum of Understanding with the Panama Canal Authority to encourage new business and trade between organizations.

The Port of Olbia, located on the Italian island of Sardinia, became Port Everglades' first Sister Seaport on March 13, 2007.  The Port of Xiamen in China signed up on September 20, 2007. Port of Marseille, France, became Port Everglades' third Sister Seaport in July 2008.  On September 23, 2010, Docas do Rio (Rio de Janeiro Port Authority) became the fourth seaport to partner with Port Everglades. The Port of Limón in Costa Rica became Port Everglades' fifth Sister Seaport on April 24, 2018. 

To become a Sister Seaport with Port Everglades, a seaport must commit to the free exchange of information pertaining to cruise and cargo operations, statistical information and general market research.
