The new $1.5 million bulk conveyor system at Port Canaveral was utilized for the first time by Martin Marietta when the Bahamas Spirit discharged limestone at South Cargo Pier 4.
 
The Canaveral Port Authority invested in the system with Martin Marietta to enhance terminal operational efficiencies and increase productivity. The new and improved conveyor system is now capable of offloading 2,000 tons per hour.
 
Martin Marietta imports various aggregates and sells and distributes them from their Port Canaveral facility into the Central Florida region.
