USA - Canaveral Cargo Terminal

GT USA - Logo 1

GT USA is investing up to $100 million in Canaveral Cargo Terminal's (CCT) new state-of-the-art container and multi-purpose cargo terminal, infrastructure, equipment and people. CCT is the only dedicated container terminal at Port Canaveral. The terminal serves as an ideal gateway for containerised movements to the Florida market, and in particular provides an excellent connection to the bustling consumption areas and growing number of distribution centres within Central Florida.  In addition to containers, CCT also handles heavy equipment, vehicles and boats as well as breakbulk and heavy lift cargo.

CCT serves 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.

Any container 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 a crucial service to the importers and 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, as well as hard dollar inland transportation savings. With robust intermodal and highway connections, out-of-state cargo can be dispatched in a quick and efficient manner.

The state of Florida is now the third most populous state in the USA and welcomes over 100 million visitors per year.  Central Florida ranked second in U.S. population growth between 2010 and 2016 and is projected to continue to be one of the fastest growing areas in the United States, thus imports and exports are expected to maintain their upward trend.

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