Ports : FREEPORT CONTAINER PORT

THE TRANSSHIPMENT TERMINAL OF THE AMERICAS

Hutchison Ports FCP was opened in 1997 by Hutchison Ports. Serving as a major hub for worldwide transshipment of containerised cargo, FCP has 16 metres of depth alongside, 750 reefer points, and 3 berths. It contains 57 hectares of stacking area and capacity to handle 1.5 million TEUs per year.

The terminal operates a sophisticated computerised 24-hour facility with state-of-the-art security. It offers comprehensive support services and leading-edge technology to the world’s largest container vessels.

We commenced operations in 1997. It is located on Grand Bahama Island — one of the largest islands in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas — and is situated about 100 miles from the port of Miami, Florida. It is currently the deepest container terminal in the region and serves as a major container transshipment hub for the eastern seaboard of the US and the principal east/west line-haul routes through the region.

With our dedicated staff and use of leading-edge technology, including real-time communications and port-management systems, FCP is capable of handling the largest container vessels in the world. Upon completion of the US$250 million Phase V Development, FCP will have total quay length of 1,536 metres, a yard area of 63 hectares, a depth alongside of 15.5 metres, nine post-Panamax cranes and one super-post-Panamax quay cranes.
