Port of Miami to Offer On-Dock Rail Service

The port of Miami, also known as the Cargo Gateway of the Americas, is gearing up to assist importers with the coming Post-Panamax era with on-port, on-dock rail service and purchase of 4 new Super Post Panamax cranes.  The restored railroad tracks will connect the port to the Hialeah Railyard which in turn will link to the national rail system providing an efficient method of entry for goods destined for distribution in the southeast US.  The new Super Post Panamax cranes are scheduled to arrive this month.  They will enable the port to handle the new generation of super-sized cargo vessels.  Overall, the Port of Miami is investing over $2 billion in infrastructure improvements over the next several years.
