“Offering this service weekly helps support growing demand from manufacturers who are choosing Jacksonville because of our port’s capabilities and close proximity to major manufacturing and import distribution centres,” said JAXPORT Chief Commercial Officer, Robert Peek.

“As our service offerings continue to grow, so does our ability to enhance cargo flow between the US Southeast and the sustainable and growing Northern Europe market”.

Jacksonville has a deepwater shipping canal that is 47 feet deep, two-way ship traffic, and same-day access to 98 million US customers.

Northeast Florida offers 152 million square feet of warehousing and distribution space, including the largest industrial park in the Southeast.
