Port Everglades Stats are Just a Click Away

Port Everglades has launched an expanded statistics page on porteverglades.net to provide the most requested information on cargo, cruise and petroleum activity. 

In addition, keeping in line with “green” efforts within Broward County and at Port Everglades, the 2013 Commerce Report is available online only. Visitors will find the same useful statistical information as the previous print version along with the Port’s many outstanding accomplishment during fiscal year 2013. 

“Visitors to our website will now have easy access to our latest trade information,” said Port Everglades Chief Executive & Port Director Steven Cernak. “Previously, we published this information in printed publications, but we decided to put it exclusively online to be more eco-friendly and eliminate printing expenses.” 

These statistical reports, which assist and promote trade growth and development, are on “print-friendly” pages. Currently, the site includes the annual statistics historically published only in the print versions of the Port’s Annual Commerce Report and its Facility Guide and Directory. 

 Now available online:

• Top 10 imported and exported containerized commodities by TEUs (20-foot equivalent units, the shipping industry’s standard of measurement)
• Top 10 total containerized commodities by TEUs 
• Market share in TEUs and metric tonnage 
• Waterborne revenue 
• Historical activity for cruise, cargo and petroleum 
• Total cargo by trade lane 
• Petroleum product breakdown 
• Foreign-Trade Zone No. 25 

Another new feature added is monthly reports on TEUs loaded and cruise passengers. These reports included year-to-date figures for both fiscal and calendar years and historical figures from the previous year. Also available on the site are the current Waterborne Commerce Report, Economic Impact Report and the most recent Florida Chamber Trade and Logistics Study. 

To view the expanded statistics page, visit porteverglades.net/aboutus and select STATISTICS from the left navigation.
