Port Everglades box throughput hits record high in December

  16.02.2017    

December 2016 proved a record-setting month for Port Everglades in Broward County, after container throughput rose 15 per cent year on year to 104,590 TEU. The throughput was the highest in the port's 90 -year history.
The majority of the increase can be attributed to a resurgence in the Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic markets, including perishable products. These market increases can also be partially attributed to the change in vessel sharing agreements between Crowley Liner Service and Seaboard Marine, reported Marine Link.
"Port Everglades helped spearhead a pilot programme to bring refrigerated produce from South America directly to Florida, when it was previously restricted to only coming into northern US ports," said Port Everglades director of business development, Jim Pyburn.
"The pilot programme was a great success and now we are seeing a wider variety of produce coming to south Florida faster and fresher than when it was trucked here from the northeast."
Several new services also contributed to the port's container volume increase, including Hapag-Lloyd commencing a direct call to port Everglades from Valencia, Spain, on its Mediterranean Gulf Express (MGX) service. The MGX service is responsible for adding 300 to 400 TEU weekly at port Everglades, which is operated by Florida International Terminal.
SeaLand and APL's North American Express Service (NAE/ACX) began service to Latin America in late 2015, and has been increasing its volumes in the first full year at port Everglades, according to Shipping Gazette.
