USA - Canaveral Cargo Terminal

GT USA - Logo 1

GT USA is investing $100 million in Canaveral Cargo Terminal's (CCT) new state-of-the-art container terminal, infrastructure, equipment and people. CCT is the only dedicated container terminal at Port Canaveral. The terminal serves as an ideal gateway for containerized movements to the Florida market, and in particular provides an excellent connection to the bustling consumption centers and growing number of distribution centers within Central Florida.

CCT will serve as a cost-effective and time-saving option for shipping lines which save valuable transit time by calling Port Canaveral due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and enjoy Gulftainer’s award winning productivity for a quick turnaround to continue their onward journey. The CCT also provides a valuable link to the Caribbean and Central American markets enabling Regional carriers to turn vessels in Port Canaveral thereby saving time and fuel.

Any box imported into Florida through CCT can reach a consignee’s warehouse in Central Florida within 1-2 hours, the fastest transit time  versus any other container terminal in Florida. It thus provides crucial service to the importers & exporters within the state who believe that time is money and assists them to maintain a lean and Just in Time supply chain management strategy. With robust intermodal and highway connections, out-of-state cargo can be dispatched in a quick and efficient manner.

CCT is expected to contribute more than $630 million to the local economy and create 2,000 direct and indirect jobs when fully operational.

GT USA is here to work in partnership to develop secure supply chain solutions, delivering growth that is real and sustainable.
