PORT CANAVERAL, Fla. - GT USA has launched the website Gulftainer.com/US as it prepares to begin operations at the new state-of the-art Canaveral Cargo Terminal in June 2015.

GT USA was created in July 2014 by Gulftainer, the world’s largest privately owned terminal operator and logistics company. Canaveral Cargo Terminal, initially developed on 20 acres with two berths and two gantry cranes, will have a capacity of 200,000 TEUs (twenty foot equivalent units), with room to grow and more than double capacity, to serve large cargo vessels.

“As operators of the only dedicated container terminal at Port Canaveral, the new website was designed to introduce GT USA to the U.S. market and provide information on GT USA’s capabilities to serve shipping lines, cargo businesses, distribution centers and import-export enterprises,” said Joe Cruise, commercial manager at GT USA.

The Gulftainer.com/US site features development updates, port maps and a site plan for the facility that outlines existing berths and Canaveral Harbor. Businesses can easily navigate the site to learn about the full range of services and supply chain solutions. Highlights include:

- Terminal Services, with information on maximum draft at berth, quay length, number of gantry cranes and direct links to intermodal rails

- Operations Information, providing hours of operations for vessel and cargo operations

- Customer Support Services and Key Contacts

GT USA plans to officially open Canaveral Cargo Terminal on June 12, 2015. The company is investing $100 million in its state-of-the-art container terminal, infrastructure, equipment and workforce at Port Canaveral. “The website is a key access point for our new customers and GT USA partners to learn how the terminal serves as an ideal gateway for containerized movements to the Florida market and beyond,” Cruise said.
