VIDEO: Deepening the St. Johns
The Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) has released a video named ‘Building a Better Future: Deepening the St. Johns’.
This video shows how JAXPORT is investing in the future to grow Northeast Florida’s global competitiveness in trade and transportation and deliver jobs and prosperity to the citizens of Northeast Florida.
Jacksonville’s main shipping channel is a 21-mile stretch of the St. Johns River extending from the mouth of the Atlantic Ocean to the Jacksonville Port Authority’s (JAXPORT’s) Talleyrand Marine Terminal just north of downtown Jacksonville.
As the owner and manager of Jacksonville’s public ship terminals, JAXPORT considers maintaining a deep harbor essential to keeping Jacksonville’s port viable.
A competitive harbor depth allows Jacksonville to accommodate the draft requirements of fully-loaded cargo vessels – both Panamax class and New Panamax class – which currently call Jacksonville’s port.
