The Governing Board of the Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) approved two new long-term agreements with AMPORTS, one of the largest automobile processors in North America, expanding the company’s lease space at the port in Jacksonville, FL.

One agreement is an extension of the company’s existing leased property at JAXPORT’s Blount Island Marine Terminal, and a second provides AMPORTS with 22.4 new acres of property for auto processing and storage space at JAXPORT’s Dames Point Marine Terminal. Both leases are for 25 years with two 5-year renewals if the extensions are approved by mutual agreement.

Both properties offer direct waterside access for vessel loading and unloading with a major interstate approximately one mile away, plus access to rail capabilities.

Combined, AMPORTS now leases more than 170 acres from JAXPORT. AMPORTS also plans to develop an additional 40-45 acres of JAXPORT property at Dames Point by 2023.
