This is awesome! I really think it’s a nerdy interest but it’s cool that Miami is a logistics hub, hopefully, it keeps it up!

Does anyone know what are the goods? I know the flower and seafood trades are big, but what else?

I’m curious how much more capacity MIA can handle considering they can’t build more runways. Will another airport need to be built?

This is just like a shot in the dark, and I think they can probably handle more, its a big airport like we have three or something London Heathrow much busier has like two.

I feel like MIA is pretty space efficient like O’hare, denver, and atlanta are super big and its like why?

Its not runway space, it would be more just space to park planes. There are three East-West runways and one NW-SE runway. There are busier airports in the world with just two runways. MIA is not even slot controlled yet. If you get to slot controlled that is when runway capacity is getting close. The other thing is you can shift cargo ops to late night early morning when there is not a congestion issue because MIA is not noise controlled.

Well this is another question… would it make sense to build an airport on the western edge of the county solely for cargo… really only need to be connected to a highway doesn’t have to be in the center of the county. Would that allow MIA to continue to grow passenger travel?
