Port Canaveral serves the region, the customers and constituencies by facilitating domestic and international Maritime commerce, creating positive regional economic impact while maintaining transparency, effective planning and sound fiscal management practices.
Cargo activity at Port Canaveral is expected to increase significantly with the continued growth of the 2.8 million-barrel Seaport Canaveral fuel tank farm and the further development of bulk cargo facilities to serve the central Florida market.
New deepwater cargo berths are under construction and will provide access to more than 60 acres available for development.
The channel widening project is crucial to Port Canaveral. It will increase capacity for cruise and cargo.
New Cargo Berth Construction
This project includes construction of deepwater seaport cargo berths, a receiving platform, shore mooring dolphins, dredging, and berth utilities. The berths will accommodate cargo ships of up to 850 feet in length alongside a dock dredged to 39 feet at the face of the wall.
