A ship carrying almost 48,000 metric tons of materials to be used in cement manufacturing arrives at Port Manatee

Port Manatee recently received its first shipment for its newest terminal operator, Carver Maritime Manatee LLC, when a ship delivered nearly 48,000 metric tons of raw material for cement manufacturing. The port signed a long-term marine terminal operating agreement with Carver, a subsidiary of the New York-based company Carver Companies, last August. Since that deal was finalized, Carver has extensively renovated a 10-acre cargo facility with deepwater access, including rehabilitating a 1,400-foot-long conveyor system.
