BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – Port Canaveral’s first ship-to-shore cranes are scheduled to arrive via barge from their 325-mile journey from the Port of Savannah on Friday, March 21 at about 8:15 a.m., weather permitting.

Suggested viewing sites are Jetty Park, Cove park between Milliken’s Reef and Miss Cape Canaveral or atop Cruise Terminal 10 Parking Garage on north side.

The post-Panamax cranes will arrive fully assembled and will provide a spectacle for onlookers. They stand twice as tall as a shuttle on the launch pad and weigh twice as much. Each crane can lift as many as 12 elephants at once with an average 45-second load rate.

As part of cargo expansion, Canaveral is building two new cargo berths, a new container terminal and working with Titusville officials and Flagler Global Logistics on an inland port that will link barge service from Port Canaveral to a distribution hub and logistics center in south Titusville.

Once the cranes arrive at Port Canaveral, they will be inspected and updated as needed prior to being put into operation with the new container terminal opening in Fall 2014.

The inland port is expected to be operational in March/April 2015.

Port Canaveral also has undertaken a $65 million capital program for rail connectivity to Florida East Coast Railway. The on-dock rail program will generate 5000 jobs within five-to-seven years and 10,000-15,000 within 10-to-15 years.
