Canaveral Cargo Terminal Set to Begin Operations

GT USA’s new Canaveral Cargo Terminal (CCT), the only dedicated container terminal at Port Canaveral, will open for business on June 12, 2015, with an unveiling ceremony and cargo terminal tour showcasing the arrival of a vessel from CMA CGM Group, one of the world’s leading container shipping companies.

GT USA executives, along with Canaveral Port Authority officials, will welcome local, state, national and international public officials as well as industry leaders to the grand opening event.

GT USA is investing $100 million in the new state-of-the-art container terminal, infrastructure, equipment and people. Canaveral Cargo Terminal, initially developed on 20 acres with two berths and two gantry cranes, begins operations with capacity of 200,000 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) to serve large cargo vessels. CCT serves as an ideal gateway for containerized movements to the Florida market and beyond, and provides an excellent connection to the bustling consumption centers and growing number of distribution centers within Central Florida.

GT USA is the U.S. division of Gulftainer, the world’s largest, privately owned, independent terminal operator and logistics company. The company signed a 35-year agreement with the Canaveral Port Authority in 2014, marking Gulftainer’s first venture in the United States.
