First Ocean-to-Air Program

Foreign Trade Zone Magnet Site Destination

New Security & Facility Enhacements

Miami International Airport is the leading international freight airport in the Americas and high-ranking global gateway freight hub with over 2.2 million tons of cargo annually. In fact, total air freight at MIA valued at $60.5 billion, or 92% of the dollar value of Florida's total air imports and exports, or 39% 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; and  innovative business development programs keep the airport on the forefront of the air cargo industry. Among its latest initiatives:

 

MIA PHARMA HUB

MIA is an IATA designated Pharma Hub and is working with local MIA participants toward CEIV Pharma Certification.  MIA pharma imports and exports totaled $5.6 billion in 2018.

MIA Foreign Trade Zone

MIA gained final approval from the U.S. Department of Commerce to designate the airport as a Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) magnet site. The FTZ will create new synergies for on-airport businesses.

MIA Cargo Clearance Center

A 24/7 on-airport operation centralizes the functions of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), providing for trade documentation processing.

OCEAN-TO-AIR PROGRAM

The Ocean-to-Air Transshipment Program 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 then air transported to international markets from MIA.

MIA Animal & Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) Facility

Consolidates the functions of Veterinary Services and Plant Protection & Quarantine from four locations into a single site.  The USDA facility houses the Veterinary Services’ import and export operations.
