Many container ships leave the port for various overseas destinations and vice versa. Because Tampa Bay is directly connected to the Gulf of Mexico, the port is a very convenient location from which to ship cars to and from countries and continents touching the Atlantic Ocean coastline. Due to the port’s proximity to the Panama Canal, it is also convenient when shipping cars to the Pacific Rim.

The main method of shipping cars to or from port of Manatee is containerized shipping. The car can be loaded into a container at a container loading facility or at the port. Cars are loaded into either a 20-feet container or a 40-feet container depending on the size of the car. The advantage of the 40-feet container is that it can fit two average size cars, presenting an opportunity for cost-reduction through cost-sharing. Container loading and unloading happens at berth 12 and 14 at the port. These berths are served by mobile cranes that are capable of handling up to 30 containers per hour.

Project cargo shipping through the port of Manatee

The port has project cargo handling capabilities. The project cargo dock is equipped with two mobile cranes that boast the highest combined lift capacity of all the Florida Ports. There is a 70-acre large laydown area for the project cargo, and goods can stay there for up to 60 days. You can ship project cargoes, which are basically heavy equipment, to and from overseas through this port.

We ship project cargo to and from the port. Some of the cargoes we have handled in the past include heavy equipment for power plants, bridge parts, and oversized vehicles. We have the equipment needed to load your heavy equipment from its current location to and from the port.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

Luis Rodriguez
You have my full support and recommendation!

A1 Auto Transport... From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
