JAXPort Future: Deepening Shipping Channel and Diversification
JAXPort’s recently released strategic plan includes two primary goals: deepening the harbor’s shipping channel to allow to 47′ to allow for post-Panamax ships and diversifying its business. Those diversifying efforts include: 1) a railyard to allow containers to be transferred directly from ships to trains instead of a trucking in-between; 2) being a leader in liquified natural gas distribution and delivery; 3) more trade opportunities with Caribbean and Latin American companies; and, 4) finalizing a plan for its waterfront land in Mayport.
