Nearly 121,400 teus moved through JAXPORT in January 2019, said CEO Eric Green. The port’s Asian container volumes continue to show significant growth, up 17% in the year to date with nearly 164,000 teus moved so far in fiscal year 2019. Nearly 61,500 autos moved through JAXPORT in January 2019, a double-digit increase over the previous January. JAXPORT’s auto volumes are up 7% so far in fiscal year 2019.
"Our leadership team is energized by these recent successes and enthusiastic about the opportunities ahead for all of our lines of business," said JAXPORT CEO Eric Green.
State of the Port
Mr Green announced the figures during the 2019 State of the Port event. This year’s event featured a panel discussion with JAXPORT’s five chief executives.
Topics of discussion included an update on the Jacksonville Harbor Deepening project, scheduled to be complete in 2023 based on continued funding from all partners. Major port growth projects were also covered, including berth enhancements currently underway at JAXPORT's Blount Island Marine Terminal.
JAXPORT’s Asian trade has grown an average of 14% annually over the past five years.
When combined with the containers handled through private terminals, more than 1.3m teus move through the Port of Jacksonville annually.
