New Agreement For Port Canaveral Aggregates
Blue Water Industries, a leading national bulk materials supplier, announced January 9 that it has entered into an agreement with Port Canaveral, Fla., terminal operator Ambassador Services International to import between 400,000 and 800,000 metric tons annually of various sized aggregate through Port Canaveral. Scheduled deliveries of the products, originating in eastern Canada, will arrive at Port Canaveral monthly and be distributed throughout Florida and the southeastern United States for use in roadway construction projects.
“This is a solid cargo business for our port and a great business win for our partners at Ambassador,” said Port CEO Capt. John Murray. “Our port’s location and ASI’s operation expansion provided Blue Water with a winning opportunity to more efficiently move product from point of origin to point of use.”
Port Canaveral is a major East Coast port with a long history of handling a broad mix of bulk and breakbulk cargoes, including aggregates, petroleum products, lumber and building materials and other commodities. Cargo throughput numbers at the port have been steadily increasing year over year, hitting new high volumes of tonnage in fiscal year 2022.
