As reported in several papers, including the Daily Business Review on July 11, 2013, international trade through South Florida has surged. Merchandise exports in the region hit a record $47.9 billion in 2012. That represents an 11 percent ($4.7 billion) increase from 2011. South Florida has apparently not had to wait for the Panama Canal expansion to enjoy this surge in activity.
