JAXPORT receives international port productivity recognition

December 18th, 2019 · Leave a Comment

The Journal of Commerce (JOC) has named the Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) the second most improved container port in North America for overall productivity. The Most Improved Ports award is among a series of port productivity recognitions presented this week during the JOC’s annual Port Performance North America Conference in Newark, NJ.

The award is based on the publication’s independent analysis of productivity among all North American ports between 2017 and 2018. JOC defines port productivity as total container moves per hour while a ship is at berth.

JAXPORT’s container operations are handled by several ocean carriers and stevedores, including: Crowley Maritime Corp. at the Talleyrand Marine Terminal; TraPac Jacksonville at the Dames Point Marine Terminal; and SSA Atlantic, Trailer Bridge, TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico, and Portus-Jacksonville at the Blount Island Marine Terminal.

JAXPORT is Florida’s No. 1 container port by volume. Over its last fiscal year, JAXPORT moved more than 1.338 million twenty-foot equivalent units (or TEUs, the industry standard for measuring containers), a 5 percent increase over 2018, which was also a record year in container volumes for the port. JAXPORT has set container volume records for four consecutive years.
