JAXPORT on pace for record container, auto volumes

[ July 9, 2019   //   ]

Through the first eight months of Jacksonville Port Authority’s (JAXPORT’s) fiscal year 2018-2019, the port is on pace to achieve records in container TEU volumes and auto units.
JAXPORT’s fiscal year began Oct. 1, 2018. Through May 2019, JAXPORT facilities have handled:
• 896,795 TEUs, an 8 percent increase over the same period last year; and
• 482,388 auto units, also an 8 percent increase over the same period in FY17-18.
The container numbers represent a port record through the first eight months of its fiscal year, and JAXPORT is on pace to break the volume record of 1.27 million TEUs set in FY17-18. The auto figures through eight months also put JAXPORT in position to achieve a new FY record with the number of auto units handled.
