The direct transfer of containers between vessels and trains speeds up the shipment process and reduces the number of trucks on the road. Ceres Rail Services manages the day-to-day operations and maintenance of the facility.
Rail that connects to CSX’s main line allows for two unit trains each day (one inbound and one outbound) carrying up to 200 containers each. Two truck lanes allow vehicles to transport containers to and from the adjacent shipping terminals.
The U.S. Dept. of Transportation awarded JAXPORT a $10 million grant toward the development of the facility, and the State of Florida Dept. of Transportation allocated $20 million to fund the project. The Dana B. Keynon Company served as the design/build contractor for the project.
