Fast Transit and Easy Navigation

Port Canaveral is an economical and convenient ocean gateway into Florida and beyond. Located directly on the main shipping lines along the East Coast of Florida, its deep draft main channel and unencumbered transit offers carriers highly efficient routing and reduced vessel costs.  The Port’s man-made harbor offers direct access to the Atlantic Ocean and a transit time from buoy to dock of less than an hour.

Cargo operation at Port Canaveral takes advantage of the efficient transportation links within our region keeping all major Florida markets within reach in just 4 hours or less drive time.  Our unique uncongested intermodal connections to highways, rail and air further reduce distribution time and costs. Nonstop direct highway access puts Orlando less than one hour from Port Canaveral and expands the reach to 81 million consumers.
