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.
 
Ambassador Services Inc. will be the vessel agent and terminal operator and Ceres will provide the stevedoring for NYK, which will call at Port Canaveral once a month.
