Share This News Story:

FLORIDA : The Jacksonville Port Authority (JAXPORT) set a new port record with the arrival of ONE Stork, the largest container ship to ever call Jacksonville in Florida, US.

Operated by Singapore-headquartered shipping line Ocean Network Express (ONE), the vessel has a carrying capacity of 14,000 TEUs.

ONE Stork is deployed on the EC5 service of THE Alliance, a container shipping partnership of Hapag-Lloyd, ONE, Yang Ming and HMM.

The EC5 service now calls the SSA Jacksonville Container Terminal (JCT) at Blount Island to utilise the terminal’s newly-deepened 47-foot harbour, which provides the water draft needed to accommodate larger vessels.

The EC5 port rotation is Laem Chabang (Thailand) – Cai Mep (Vietnam) – Singapore – Colombo (Sri Lanka) – Suez Canal – Halifax (Canada) – New York – Savannah – Jacksonville – Norfolk – Halifax.

ONE’s Director of East Coast and Gulf Port Operations, Louis Ferrer said, “The operational capabilities of Jacksonville’s harbor to accommodate vessels of this size make JAXPORT a great fit for us. We are pleased that our customers will continue to benefit from direct service and efficient transit times between Asia and the Southeast U.S. offered through the EC5.”
