JAXPORT recently welcomed Liberty Passion, the nation’s newest U.S.-flagged pure car and truck carrier (PCTC), to Blount Island Marine Terminal during the vessel’s maiden voyage. PCTCs are designed to accommodate all types of vehicles, from completed passenger cars to construction machinery.

JAXPORT is one of 17 U.S. Strategic Seaports on-call to move military cargo for national defense, foreign humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, and the only port in Florida with this designation. Jacksonville is one of the nation’s busiest ports for total vehicle handling. In 2016, JAXPORT moved more than 652,000 vehicles.

Our Host Agency Operations Manager Travis Johnson presented a framed 1856 historical chart of the entrance to St. Johns River to MV Liberty Passion’s captain.
