Coming August 3, 2015, the port gets a new look

Port of Pensacola

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 (FTZ #249), an Enterprise Zone (EZ #1702), 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.

A deepwater port master plan embraces long- and short-term goals for the Port’s growth, as does a recently-completed Port Business Strategic Analysis.

The Port of Pensacola is an enterprise department of the City of Pensacola and is governed by the Pensacola City Council.

Our very own, Kenny Emberton, was recently awarded the City's Award of Merit for his work and effort in being stewards of the public trust. Kenny along with Heath Philips, combined forces for what could be considered one of the largest City projects addressed over the past year. The recent airport stormwater project insluded the removal of a significant amount of fill as part of the pond's reengineering. We were able to work with the Airport and City Engineering to determine that the dirt being excavated was suitable for use by us to bring the elevation of several acress of below grade unimproved property up to grade- vastly improving the usability and marketability of the property. Heath and Kenny's knowledge and combined efforts resulted in the Port recieving 35,000 cubic yards of fill dirt worth approximately $272,000.
Wow! Awesome Kenny and congratulations!
