About Port Tampa Bay

Port Tampa Bay is Florida’s largest seaport by land and tonnage, handling over 34 million tons of cargo per year. It is also one of the most diversified ports in the country with a wide mix of containerized, bulk, break bulk and perishable cargos, as well as being a major cruise homeport and an important hub for shipbuilding and repair.

Port Tampa Bay is the closest port to the I-4 Corridor, home to the largest concentration of distribution centers and manufacturers in the State.  An aggressive terminal expansion program, coupled with the Port’s proximity to the expanded Panama Canal and growing markets in Latin America, has resulted in new and expanded container services to serve this growing market for imports and exports.

Port Tampa Bay is also Florida’s largest port in terms of real estate holdings encompassing over 5000 acres, and has industrially zoned parcels available for development, including with access to deep water and excellent interstate highway and rail connectivity.
