NYK to Offer Monthly Car Carrier Service from Port Canaveral

NYK will launch a liner ro/ro service from Port Canaveral to Central and South America, opening a logistical pathway for Central Florida auto and heavy equipment businesses. The first scheduled caller will be the pure car carrier MV Neptune Leader V 65 on October 10.
"With the relatively short trucking distance between Port Canaveral and the numerous auto and heavy equipment auctions located in Central Florida, the NYK service will provide area businesses with cost-effective options and positions us competitively with other Florida seaports," said Alberto Cabrera, Port Canaveral’s senior director of cargo business development.
"NYK looks forward to adding Port Canaveral to its service scope to meet our customers growing demands" said Gary J. Hurley, VP Sales-NYK Line RORO Division.

Ambassador Services Inc. will be the vessel agent and terminal operator and Ceres will provide the stevedoring for NYK, which will call Port Canaveral once a month.
