NYK will begin car carrier transport service from Port Canaveral to Central and South Americas, starting October 10, 2015. The first vessel will be the MV Neptune Leader V 65.
“With the relatively short trucking distance between Port Canaveral and the numerous auto and heavy equipment auctions located in Central Florida
, the NYK service will provide area businesses with cost-effective options and positions us competitively with other Florida seaports
,” said Alberto Cabrera, Port Canaveral’s Senior Director of Cargo Business Development.
Gary J. Hurley, VP Sales-NYK Line RORO Division, cited growing customer demand in adding Canaveral to NYK's service scope.
