JAXPORT increases FY2019 box volume


The Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) increased annual container throughput five per cent year on year in FY2019 to 1.33 million TEU in the harbour fourth consecutive record year, reported New York's Marine Link.
Florida's busiest container port also moved the most vehicles in its history, nearly 696,500 total units, maintaining its position as one of the nation's biggest ro-ro ports. Strong auto sales in the southeast US, combined with growing global demand for previously owned vehicles, contributed to the growth.
The growth in general cargo volumes fuelled yet another record for the port: 10.9 million tons of total cargo moved through JAXPORT last year, up four per cent over 2018.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) awarded JAXPORT an additional US$35.3 million for the Jacksonville Harbour Deepening project. With continued funding, harbour dredging remains on track to be completed in 2023, two years ahead of schedule.
Also terminal operator SSA Atlantic is set to break ground on a state-of-the-art international container terminal at JAXPORT's Blount Island terminal. Upon completion of the deepening project, the facility will offer a newly widened vessel turning basin and deepwater access of 47 feet.
Port processor AMPORTS added 22.4 new acres of property for auto processing and storage space at JAXPORT's Dames Point terminal, with plans to develop an additional 40-45 acres by 2023.
2019 was also a strong year for JAXPORT's cruise business, with nearly 195,000 passengers setting sail, just shy of the previous year's cruise passenger record of 199,000 passengers.
Dry bulk cargoes increased 19 per cent over 2018, with nearly 880,000 tons shipped. Breakbulk cargoes, including wood pulp, increased seven per cent with 934,600 tons moved.
Liquid bulk cargoes, including molasses and corn syrup, are up four per cent with nearly 380,300 tons moved. The port also recorded year-on-year cargo revenue growth for more than a decade.
