JAXPORT announces expansion of RO-RO services from NYK Lines

May 25, 2014




NYK Line is expanding its roll-on/roll-off service to and from Jacksonville to include connections in Asia. Beginning in June, these new connections will enhance NYK’s existing Ro/Ro service to the Middle East with the carrier increasing sailings to three per month from JAXPORT.

“We are pleased to further grow our partnership with NYK RoRo and provide more options to the industry,” said Roy Schleicher, JAXPORT Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer. “NYK’s additional service and sailings are the direct result of our shared reputation for excellence in vehicle-handling and customer care.”
The newly expanded service now offers connections to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Japan, and Australia, as well China and Taiwan via Japan. NYK RoRo is accepting all types of Ro/Ro cargo for the new service, including mafi trailers for selected destinations. In addition, NYK RoRo continues service between Jacksonville and dozens of ports in the Mid-East, South American West Coast, Central America and Mexico.
As the nation’s No. 1 port for vehicle exports and a premiere vehicle-handling port, JAXPORT boasts 14 ocean carriers moving autos for more than a dozen manufacturers and service from three automobile processors located in close proximity to the Ro/Ro berths. For high and heavy Ro/Ro cargo, JAXPORT also features a one-acre paved storage lot with reinforced concrete.
