Join us for a harbor cruise to learn how Port Tampa Bay influences all of our daily personal and business lives even though most of us take it for granted because we seldom see it. This Success Safari is going to take us on the water to tour the Port and discover its history, economic impact, the upcoming new changes and upgrades as well as how do they do that? Port Tampa Bay is largest of the Florida ports by tonnage and land, and is a critical economic engine for all of Central Florida. We are in the fastest growing region of our state and Port Tampa Bay is a full-service port handling all types of cargo and cruise passengers, as well as other maritime activities including important shipbuilding and repair facilities. Building on a long and rich history as a significant bulk port, Port Tampa Bay today handles a broad mix of bulk, break-bulk, container, ro/ro and heavy lift/project cargo.
Unique to the Port Tampa Bay is its vast and growing acreage. Private and public properties comprise 5,000 acres across the entire port complex, of which more than 300 are currently available. These land assets are vital in attracting new business and stimulating manufacturing, which create jobs and economic value for the region. The port continues to build its container business to serve the immediate central Florida region, and beyond, providing a more cost-effective alternative for carriers and shippers, whose concentration of distribution centers along the I-4 corridor represent Florida’s largest and are rivaled by only Atlanta in the entire Southeast. Port Tampa Bay is also a vital energy products gateway to all of central Florida and is an important global distribution point for fertilizer. Be prepared to be wowed!
