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

Port of Everglades Acting Director Glenn Wiltshire commented that “with the commissioning of the new cranes, our historic $471 million Southport Turning Notch expansion project is nearly complete.”

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