Miami International Airport is America’s largest international cargo gateway to the world and 11th busiest worldwide, with 2.2 million tons of cargo annually. In fact, total air freight at MIA topped $59 billion in 2017, or 94% of the dollar value of Florida's total air imports and exports, or 40% of the States total (air and sea) trade with the world.  

MIA’s 3.4 million square feet of cargo- dedicated warehouse, cold storage, office and support space; 45 all-cargo airlines; 109 freight-only destinations and  innovative business development programs keep the airport on the forefront of the air cargo industry. Among its latest initiatives:

  •, an association created by MIA and Brussels Airport to grow the global pharmaceutical cargo business through a collaborative network of the world’s top airports.
  • The first Ocean-to-Air Perishables Trans-Shipment Program in the state of Florida, which saves time and money for cargo shippers with expedited air transport of perishable products. The Program permits perishables to arrive from Latin America by sea and the air transported to international markets from MIA.  
  • Foreign Trade Zone Magnet Site designation will create new synergies for on-airport businesses.
  • New surveillance cameras and lighting have been installed to improve already vigilant security monitoring, situational awareness, crime deterrence and overall safety of cargo partner properties.
