MOL adds export service to Jacksonville
April 21, 2009
MOL will soon offer direct export service between Jacksonville, Florida (JAXPORT) and European and African ports as part of its APX service.
The addition of Jacksonville to the APX US eastbound port rotation will provide exporters with greater flexibility and expanded South Atlantic port coverage. From Jacksonville, the APX continues with calls in Europe and connections to West and South Africa. The first APX vessel to include Jacksonville in its port rotation is scheduled to sail from the TraPac Container Terminal at JAXPORT on May 9.
The APX port rotation includes: Miami – Jacksonville – Savannah – Charleston – New York – Rotterdam – Bremerhaven – Felixstow
“In today’s economy there is a very real need for more cost-effective services. By offering a direct export service from a key hub like Jacksonville, MOL is responding to that need,” said Tsuyoshi Yoshida, executive vice president, MOL Trade Management.
