As a diverse global gateway, Port Manatee can handle a variety of bulk, break bulk, containerized and heavy lift project cargos. Port Manatee offers excellent highway connectivity, a congestion free environment as well as on-dock-rail.

Added to support Port Manatee’s cargo mix are the two Gottwald HMK 6407 mobile harbor cranes capable of handling a variety of commodities at multiple berth locations. These cranes each have a lift capacity of 100 tons at 80 feet and a tandem lift capacity of 165 tons making this the highest tandem lift capacity of any Florida Port.
