Company Description:

Port Canaveral is a world-class strategic gateway for Central Florida, now the tenth largest consumer market in the United States with economic growth well above the national average. The Port is the world's second busiest cruise port and Florida’s third largest by operating revenues, which are expected to exceed $100 million in Fiscal Year 2018. 

Port Canaveral is a 21st century economic driver for the region, generating $2.2 billion economic impact annually. As such, great emphasis is placed on forward-looking strategic planning to guide efforts and improvements at the Port to exceed its annual goals of facilitating commerce and tourism.

The Port’s value must be sustained as both a viable commercial entity and community resource, while keeping pace with an increasingly complex global marketplace. By investing in the Port's capabilities and capacity, in combination with assured financial growth and stability, the Port achieves certainty to support the needs of its stakeholders today and is well positioned to meet the demands of tomorrow.

Port Canaveral is a popular homeport and port of call for some of the world's largest, most sophisticated cruise ships afloat. Nearly 5 million revenue cruise passengers are expected at the Port this fiscal year, once again making it the second-busiest cruise port in the world.  By 2019, the Port is expected to be the first U.S. port capable of serving LNG-powered cruise and cargo vessels.

Port Canaveral's man-made deep-draft harbor offers direct access to the Atlantic Ocean facilitating a transit time from first buoy to dock of only 45 minutes.  The Port's central east coast Florida location and easy access to major road and rail systems puts it within three hours of every major Florida market.  A larger market of 81 million consumers throughout Florida and into the Southeast U.S. is accessible within eight hours of Port Canaveral. These critical advantages attracted nearly 6 million tons of diverse cargo through the Port in 2017.

Investment decisions for the future will be driven by the Port's new Strategic Master Plan. This plan, as adopted by the Port's Board of Commissioners, sets the vision for the Port's future while supporting the foundations of its success. This multi-year "look ahead" includes near term priorities of investments in expanded capabilities and infrastructure improvements that continue to advance Port business lines and recreational activities.

Canaveral Port Authority has made strategic investments in harbor and landside infrastructure improvements to augment the Port's mission as Central Florida's premier maritime gateway. Several complex infrastructure projects will be initiated or completed at the Port in the next two to five years. More than $446 million currently identified in the five-year capital improvement projects will construct and expand port facilities and infrastructure to increase the Port's capabilities and capacity in cruise and cargo operations. Crucial road network improvements will address increased demand by cruise and cargo partners. Revamped bulkhead will support the booming commercial space industry that depends on Port Canaveral for recovery and re-launch operations.

Port Canaveral views its partnerships with stakeholders as valued investments in the Port's future and essential to sustaining success in the maritime industry.  Through these partnerships with customers, tenants and community members, Port Canaveral's success will continue to contribute to the overall health and prosperity of the greater Central Florida region.
