The Port of Tampa has a new name

TAMPA, FLA. (970 WFLA) - It's now called Port Tampa Bay.

It's the new name of the Port of Tampa.  Port executives say this will give it a more regional emphasis as the port continues to grow and expand its reach into Latin America and other parts of the world. 

They say 2014 will see more port expansion projects and campaigns to drum up business as far aways as Asia.

Port Tampa Bay is also expected to welcome more than a million cruise ship passengers this year.
