Florida International Terminal (FIT) participated in the ribbon cutting of the three new Super Post-Panamax cranes that will provide services for the four terminals of the Port of Everglades.

FIT general manager, Justin Weir, commented that “this milestone reinforces collaborative work to modernize the operations of the Port of Everglades, providing better service to the entire foreign trade chain.”

For his part, Port of Everglades Chief Operating Officer Glenn Wiltshire commented that “with the commissioning of the new cranes, our historic $471 million Southport Turning Notch expansion project is almost complete.”

The 175-foot (53-meter) tall cranes have a reach of 22 containers and a lifting height of 8 containers, and will be located at Pier 30, to which FIT has preferential access.

With this, Port Everglades has a total of 13 gantry cranes (six Super Post Panamax and seven Post Panamax) and one mobile crane. Representatives of the government, operators of the different terminals and collaborators were present on the occasion.
