Port Everglades is South Florida’s “powerhouse port” and one of the most diverse seaports in the United States. One of the top three cruise ports in the world and among the most active containerized cargo ports in the United States, Port Everglades is South Florida’s main seaport for petroleum products such as gasoline and jet fuel.
Exotic cruise vacations and international trade are what make Port Everglades a vital economic engine for Hollywood and Broward County. As a leading container port in a region that thrives on trade and tourism, the port is the ideal point of entry for companies that conduct business in Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, and the Far East. A foreign-trade zone and available office space within the Port make it a highly desirable business center for world trade.
Port Everglades is a self-supporting Enterprise Fund of the Broward County government. It does not rely on local tax dollars for operations or capital improvements. The total value of economic activity at Port Everglades is approximately $30.5 billion, and more than 231,579 Florida jobs are impacted by the Port, including 13,127 people who work for companies that provide direct services to Port Everglades.
The Port is moving forward with several expansion projects designed to meet the demands of our growing population and the needs of our maritime industry.
