Governor Rick Scott and Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry visited Blount Island to see firsthand the important role JAXPORT is playing in the humanitarian effort to help the people of Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria.

The visit included a tour of a Blount Island warehouse that is being used to distribute Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) supplies.

JAXPORT leadership joined representatives from JEA, Crowley Maritime, TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico, Trailer Bridge, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Portus and ILA 1593 to discuss how the Jacksonville community is working together to ensure that much needed relief supplies, including bottled water, generators and other equipment, are delivered to the island.
