USA – new container terminal at Port Canaveral

Port Canaveral unveiled its new dedicated container terminal, Canaveral Cargo Terminal (CCT), on 12 June.

CCT has an initial capacity of 200,000 teu with 20 acres of stacking areas. There are plans to extend this to 750,000 teu capacity as demand grows. The two-berth terminal is equipped with two cranes.

The terminal is the result of a US$ 100 million investment by Gulftainer, the world’s largest privately owned terminal operator, through its US subsidiary, GT USA – the company’s first such venture in the US. In 2014 Canaveral Port Authority signed a 35-year agreement with GT USA to operate and develop the container and multipurpose cargo terminal.
