Over 20,000 jobs and $4.7 billion in annual economic activity are tied to the roughly 13 million tons of cargo that move through Cleveland Harbor each year.  The Port of Cleveland is the only local government agency whose sole mission is to spur job creation and economic vitality in Cuyahoga County.  The Port is an economic engine for our community, a key to Northeast Ohio’s global competitiveness, and a crucial partner in building Cuyahoga County’s future.
