MSC’s ScanBaltic to the United States container service, now calling the Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) bi-weekly, is going to increase its sailing frequency into Jacksonville to weekly from early August.
The service connects Jacksonville with seven destinations in Northern Europe.
The service’s port rotation is Klaipeda (Lithuania), Gdynia (Poland), Gothenburg (Sweden), Bremerhaven (Germany), Felixstowe (UK), Antwerp (Belgium), Le Havre (France), New York (US), Philadelphia (US), Norfolk (US) and Jacksonville (US)
ScanBaltic to US service calls the SSA Jacksonville Container Terminal (JCT) at JAXPORT’s Blount Island Marine Terminal, while SSA Atlantic provides stevedoring services at Blount Island.
“Offering this service weekly helps support growing demand from manufacturers who are choosing Jacksonville because of our port’s capabilities and close proximity to major import and manufacturing distribution centers,” said JAXPORT chief commercial officer, Robert Peek.
