ContainerPort Group opens Jacksonville terminal

Feb. 27, 2023
CPG's new drayage terminal marks an effort to expand in the Southeast. The carrier is contracting more hazmat and tanker drivers as part of its expansion.

Drayage provider ContainerPort Group (CPG) has opened a new terminal in Jacksonville, Florida, as part of its strategy to expand offerings in the Southeast.

“The Jacksonville Port Authority (JaxPort) continues to invest in their facility, and several of our commercial partners already utilize the port for both imports and exports, making now the perfect time for us to plant our flag in this market,” stated CPG President Joey Palmer in a press release. “We are confident that we will swiftly establish ourselves as the premier trucking outfit in the Jacksonville market, strengthening our position in the southeast and furthering our vision of covering every port and every rail across the U.S.”

CPG (No. 90 on the FleetOwner 500) stated in the release that it intends to expand and diversify its fleet by contracting drivers who are certified to handle hazardous materials and tankers, with terminal manager Dawn Cline saying the company is already seeing a spike in driver applications. To aid this growth, the terminal will have a fleet of private chassis on site.

CPG chose Jacksonville because it is connected to three major highways and three major railroads and has 152 million square feet of distribution and warehousing space near the port, the company stated. Additionally, a recently completed harbor deepening project provides a 47-foot channel depth to accommodate larger ships and more freight.
