Highly trained stevedores at JAXPORT recently moved a 108,000-pound generator bound for a manufacturing plant in the Midwest through the port's Talleyrand Marine Terminal.
The machinery, which is worth more than $2 million, was made in Germany and shipped from Belgium to JAXPORT in a wooden crate aboard the Spliethoff general cargo vessel Dynamogracht.
The stevedores involved in the operation are experienced in the movement of specialty, heavy-lift cargo and are employed by JAXPORT tenant Seaonus. The equipment will be trucked to the Midwest aboard an 11-axle tractor trailer.
Talleyrand Marine Terminal offers 4,780 linear feet of berth space and is conveniently located near three U.S. interstates, I-10, I-95 and I-75. Jacksonville's skilled workforce offers a variety of labor options, including highly trained master riggers specializing in heavy lift and project cargo.
JAXPORT offers worldwide cargo service, including direct service with Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, South America, the Caribbean and other key markets.
