Port Canaveral Opens Vehicle Processing Facility

Port Canaveral

Florida’s Port Canaveral officially opened its new vehicle processing facility located alongside its South Cargo Pier 4 in early March with a call by the 653-foot-long auto carrier Wisteria Ace to discharge 730 vehicles. The port-operated processing facility features a 16-acre paved storage area and a 20,000-square-foot, climate-controlled processing warehouse that has been equipped with LED lighting.

Current capacity is 100,000 vehicles annually but with the potential to increase to 240,000 annually if required. Port Canaveral assumed operation of the facility when the former operator’s lease expired in January of this year.
