Caribbean cargo carried through Jaxport

January 3 - Stevedores employed by Seaonus at Jaxport's Talleyrand Marine Terminal in Jacksonville, Florida have moved four massive Caterpillar 770 specialty dump trucks onto a cargo ship bound for a Morton Salt facility in the southern Bahamas.

Jaxport's 100-ton (90.7-tonne) capacity multipurpose whirley crane was used to lift the vehicles - each weighing 35 tons (31.7 tonnes), standing 14 ft (4.2 m) tall and measuring 30 ft (9.1 m) in length - onto the chartered vessel VI-NAIS. The four trucks were refurbished in St. Augustine, Florida, and transported to Jacksonville via individual flatbed tractor trailers.

The trucks will be used to haul salt harvested for water softening and road de-icing.
