Port of Pensacola – The Upside

The Propeller Club of Pensacola and the Port of Pensacola User’s Association host:

“Port of Pensacola:  The Upside”

Thursday, August 2, 2012 @ 11:45 a.m., Heritage Hall – Seville Quarter 

The Propeller Club of Pensacola and the Port of Pensacola User’s Association are hosting a luncheon to discuss the vital role of the Port of Pensacola.  You are invited to join the conversations with Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward, Representative Doug Broxson (R–Gulf Breeze), Representative Lake Ray (R–Jacksonville), and Senator Greg Evers (R-Baker).

Tracing its history back to the mid-1700s, the Port of Pensacola has evolved into northwest Florida’s leading deep-water port. With its eight deep-draft berths and more than 400,000 square feet of covered storage, the Port is located on the Gulf of Mexico just 11 miles from the sea buoy. The 50-acre facility offers a Foreign Trade Zone, an Enterprise Zone, and stevedoring and marine terminal services for all descriptions of bulk, breakbulk and unitized freight.

Among the Port’s leading commodities are bagged agricultural products, cement, paper, aggregate, power plant and power generation equipment, animal feed and animal feed components, construction supplies and materials, and frozen cargo. In addition to its stellar labor force and extraordinary access to international waters, the Port of Pensacola is widely regarded for its attractive rates and expertise in handling project and heavy-lift cargoes.  Please join us for updates on short-term and long-term goals for the Port’s growth.
