Modernization Starts at Florida International Terminal

Florida International Terminal (FIT), operated by provider of port, towage and logistics services SAAM, has commenced a modernization project in an effort to improve its services.

The project entails building a modern terminal with new facilities such as a gatehouse with eight lines, doubling its capacity to receive and ship containers, as well as an office building, a new connection bank for refrigerated cargo and agricultural inspection platforms for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

“These investments are part of our long-term development plan to continue positioning FIT as one of South Florida’s main cargo terminals, with the best customer service in the region,” Klaus Stadthagen, FIT’s CEO, said.

All of these infrastructure investments are accompanied by a plan to increase security for associates and cargo and other continual improvements in terminal operations.

Cargo movements through Florida International Terminal, which services shipping lines including Hamburg Süd, Hapag Lloyd, Sealand, Yang Ming, NYK, ZIM, CMA-CGM/APL, reached over 202,000 TEUs in 2016.
