Port Everglades Authority (the Port), located in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, is the state's largest container port, handling over $45 billion in exports for U.S. Customs District 52. The Port was looking to expand its market presence in Latin America and contacted the CS Fort Lauderdale office for assistance. The CS provided counseling on market opportunities and facilitated key business appointments with potential clients. As a result, the Port was awarded several new international accounts, including the Hamburg-Sud container shipping line in Chile, valued at $500,000, and is now the largest U.S. port exporting to Latin America.
