Ports America Stevedoring President Tom Perdue and Port Tampa Bay CEO Paul Anderson sign container terminal amended/extended contract and breakbulk concession.

At the end of July, Ports America and the Port Tampa Bay Container Terminal signed an amended agreement, valid through May 2046, for a new breakbulk concession of five years, which includes two one-year extension options.

“For the past 10 years, Ports America and Port Tampa Bay have enjoyed a committed, productive partnership and look forward to increasing containerized imports from vessels arriving through the newly expanded Panama Canal as well as trans-Atlantic cargo shipments,” Ports America Stevedoring President Tom Perdue said. “This important extended contract will bring value-added services to the local economy and the region.” 

Part of the new value at the terminal is the joint purchase of two new ZPMC post-Panamax gantry cranes made in Shanghai, China, which arrived in April and were assembled and tested in 60 days. These cranes have a SWL of 65 tons, are 310 feet tall and have a width reach of 21 containers across. They will supplement the facility’s existing three gantry cranes.
