JAXPORT welcomes largest containership to ever call a Florida port
26 June 2017 - 12:00 - Update: 27 June 2017 - 09:23


​JAXPORT and the TraPac Container Terminal at Dames Point on June 24 welcomed the 10,100-TEU (container) MOL Bravo, the largest containership to ever visit a Florida port. The MOL Bravo transited the Suez Canal from Asia before reaching the U.S. East Coast, the company said in its press release. Although the ship is moving a significant amount of cargo during its Jacksonville stop, it won’t be able to operate at full capacity due to the 40-foot depth of the St. Johns River shipping channel. The federal project to deepen the channel to 47 feet to accommodate more cargo aboard the largest ships is set to begin construction by early 2018.
