PortMiami’s independent container terminals, South Florida Container Terminal (SFCT) and Port of Miami Terminal Operating Company (POMTOC), are participating in the operations.
“We welcome the TA6 to our Global Gateway,” said Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “I’m proud that PortMiami continues to steadily expand its cargo business. We’re witnessing the results of more than $1 billion completed capital infrastructure investments that offer shippers a strategic hub equipped to efficiently handle the world’s ocean carriers.”
“I want to thank Maersk and MSC for recognizing the advantages of selecting PortMiami for their TA6 service,” said Chairwoman of the Economic Development and Tourism Committee Rebeca Sosa. “Expanding business equals more jobs and opportunities for our community.”
PortMiami is among America’s busiest ports and recognized as a global gateway. PortMiami contributes more than $43 billion annually to Miami-Dade County and generates 334,000 direct, indirect, and induced jobs.
