Registration and tag purchase are open. PortMiami is subsiding two thirds of cost of each tag, which means you'll only be paying $36.00. Motor carriers must purchase their tags, via credit card or ACH/eCheck, by selecting PortMiami as the facility in order to access the reduced rate.

Recently we have had several close calls with Drivers pulling away from the RTG too fast and not allowing enough time for spreader to fully disengage from container once landed on chassis.
This could cause a very serious accident, including having the entire RTG topple over and collapse.
Please speak to your drivers and explain to them the seriousness of this issue and how immensely important it is that they are 100% fully attentive when taking a delivery from an RTG crane. The RTG blows the horn like a top loader, but if their DRIVER SIDE window is up they MAY not hear it. Encourage them to take appropriate steps to minimize risk involved:

SFCT is starting our eRTG project which will prepare the terminal for the future. The construction company has been moving their equipment in and we fenced off the first area that will be worked. We had to move a few fences to accommodate the construction equipment but these will be completed in a day or two. In the meantime the truckline might be a little slower than usual however, every trucker that comes to the terminal will be serviced.
We appreciate your understanding and patience during this period and we will make every effort to accommodate every customer.

For over 35 years, SFCT has operated and cooperated with PortMiami to serve cargo carriers from around the globe, bringing essential goods in for the South Florida community as well as those markets further North in Florida and throughout the United States. These incomparable times of unseen viral spread and “social distancing” forced our operation to expand its safety awareness efforts to include not only the physical safety of those working in the terminal, but also the immune safety of all those we consider fellow employees: The International Longshoremen Union, contractors, vendors, truckers and our own company employees. SFCT considers the continued health and safety of these workers to be of utmost importance in order to continue servicing our community in this time of unexpected business closures and stay-at-home orders.
Since this outbreak, SFCT has stayed in constant communication with the Port Authority, US Customs, ILA locals, trucking companies, local companies and our Steam Ship line customers to coordinate and communicate our efforts as we learned more about the spread of COVID-19. The ILA local has started performing temperature checks at their hiring hall to ensure anyone showing signs of the virus are sent home in order to stop its spread throughout their hall or while on a job. SFCT has started the same procedure at our main entrance to check our own workers along with ILA checkers and mechanics.
