More than 3,000 cargo vessels move nearly 24 million tons of cargo including containerized cargo, break bulk, dry bulk and petroleum products through Port Everglades. As the busiest container port in the Florida, Port Everglades offers a full range of facilities and services for the cargo shipping industry. The port's current facilities and planned expansions focus on transferring and storing all that waterborne commerce as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

Current Cargo facilities include:

  • 324 acres of open yard storage space in Midport and Southport
  • 200 petroleum storage tanks
  • 300,000 square feet (27,800 square meters) of transit warehouse space
  • 1.6 million cubic feet of refrigerated storage
  • 1,300+ reefer outlets

Additional facilities and equipment:

  • Cement silos
  • Dockside transit cargo terminals
  • Convenient Foreign-Trade Zone with U.S. Customs-protected warehousing
  • 9 gantry cranes to assist with the loading and unloading of containers

Simplified Cargo Transfer
Many ships are equipped with their own cranes and unload cargo directly onto the port's docks, waiting trucks or into "hoppers," large funnels that empty into trucks. Port Everglades also provides a variety of transfer methods:

  • Cranes (lift-on/lift-off)
  • Ramps (roll-on/roll-off or ro-ro)
  • Special float-on/float-off operations for yachts, loading arms, pipelines and hoses for liquid cargo
  • Pneumatic unloaders for dry bulk products such as cement

Whatever the cargo delivered, the port accommodates shippers' requests.
