SeaPort Manatee seems to be on track to set a record in total cargo

SeaPort Manatee appears to be on track to set a record in total cargo, surpassing its high mark of nearly 10.5 million tons set in fiscal 2021. It saw a 32% surge in containerized cargo tonnage in the six months ending March 31 over the same period last year.

The port’s growth has been in spite of the Covid-19 pandemic. SeaPort officials have expanded facilities to encourage and accommodate growth. Unlike some other ports, enough 18-wheelers have been available to keep the cargo moving once it arrives at SeaPort Manatee.

“SeaPort Manatee’s sustained growth in all sectors of cargo activity demonstrates continuing ability to adeptly meet the needs of consumers and industry throughout central and southwest Florida and beyond,” Executive Director Carlos Buqueras said in a statement.
