The Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) said its customers now have access to a new container service to the West Coast of South America through Ocean Network Express (ONE).
ONE has added Rodman, Panama, as a port of call on its EC1 U.S. East Coast service, connecting JAXPORT’s TraPac Container Terminal at Dames Point in Jacksonville, Florida, to eight new destinations in South America.
The addition of a Rodman port call, which took effect at the beginning of October, provides connections from Jacksonville to Guayaquil, Ecuador; Paita and Callao, Peru; Buenaventura, Colombia; and Puerto Angamos, Lirquen, San Antonio and Coronel, Chile.
ONE’s EC1 service also offers direct container service from Jacksonville to Tokyo and Kobe, Japan; Busan, South Korea; Xiamen, Yantian and Hong Kong in China; and Kaohsiung, Taiwan, JAXPORT said.
“We continue to work with our ocean carrier partners to expand service offerings from Jacksonville,” said Lisa Wheldon, JAXPORT’s director of trade development and rail, in a statement. “This service further connects northeast Florida exporters, including the area’s robust forest products sector, to an important and growing segment of the global economy.”
