JAXPORT marks a new monthly record

The Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) achieved its highest-ever monthly container volumes in August, moving nearly 115,700 twenty-foot equivalent units (or TEUs, the industry standard for measuring containers). The previous JAXPORT monthly container record of 115,300 TEUs was set in December 2017.

JAXPORT’s container volumes are up 20 percent year–to–date in fiscal year 2018. Taking into account volumes moving through private terminals, Jacksonville’s port is on track to surpass last year’s record-setting 1.3 million TEUs. JAXPORT’s fiscal year runs Oct. 1- Sept. 30.

The port’s Asian container volumes continue to show significant growth, up 10 percent year–to–date with nearly 382,000 TEUs moved so far in 2018. JAXPORT offers service from all three of the world’s major shipping alliances and the deepening of Jacksonville’s shipping channel to 47 feet to accommodate even more cargo aboard the largest ships is well underway.

JAXPORT’s Puerto Rican volumes are up 34 percent to date in FY2018 with nearly 669,700 TEUs moved. As the primary U.S. port for commercial trade with Puerto Rico, JAXPORT and its partners continue to supply aid to the residents following Hurricane Maria’s devastation in September 2017.
