MIA Cargo HUB

Miami International Airport (MIA) is essential to Miami-Dade’s trade status, as MIA’s air service network, dominance in the region’s stronghold markets, and overall trade infrastructure are key for bridging business in the Hemisphere.

The leader in the Americas in international freight and the world’s largest gateway to Latin America & the Caribbean, MIA controls the north / south cargo flows in the Western Hemisphere. Handling 82% of all air imports and 76% of all exports from the Latin American / Caribbean region, MIA serves as the hub for distribution of perishable products, hi-tech commodities, telecommunications equipment, textiles, pharmaceuticals and industrial machinery.

Over 90 airlines at MIA contribute to the year-round, two-way cargo traffic, linking the Americas with the high growth markets in Asia, Europe, the Middle East / Gulf Region and beyond.

Exceptional infrastructure and facilitation, new runway capacity with no slot restrictions or delays, and room for growth, form just part of MIA’s outstanding attributes.
