JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- JAXPORT will become a new shipping hub for a company that operates in Central America.
Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), a leading global shipping line, is now making weekly stops at the Talleyrand Marine Terminal. JAXPORT says the revised route will help the company reach ports in Guatemala and Honduras more efficiently.
"MSC's move emphasizes JAXPORT's growing role in the efficient movement of goods between the U.S. and Central America," said JAXPORT CEO Paul Anderson. "More importantly, the change underscores the shift that's taking place as shippers and cargo owners recognize the efficiencies that JAXPORT offers and respond to the opportunities they find here."
The new service will also allow JAXPORT customers to reach global markets via MSC's transshipment hub in Freeport, Bahamas.
