Atlantic Loop 3 calls at Jaxport
It's the first time that Hapag-Lloyd’s Atlantic Loop 3 (AL3) European-US container service has called the Florida-based Jacksonville Port Authority (Jaxport). The vessel is berthing at Jaxport’s Trapac Container Terminal at Dames Point for at least the next eight weeks to avoid US port congestion.
With no vessels waiting at anchorage and two-way ship traffic to and from berths, "Hudson Express" was able to berth and begin working immediately upon its arrival in Jacksonville.
The temporary extension of the AL3 brings an estimated 8,000 additional teu through the port over the next two months. The service calls Antwerp, Hamburg, London, Charleston, Jacksonville and Norfolk. (sh)
