May 23 - From June 2014, NYK Line is expanding its roll-on/roll-off service to and from Jacksonville to include connections in Asia.

The new connections will enhance NYK's existing ro-ro service to the Middle East with the carrier increasing sailing to three per month from JAXPORT.

The newly expanded service will offer connections to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Japan, and Australia, as well China and Taiwan via Japan.

NYK is accepting all types of ro-ro cargo for the new service, including mafi trailers for selected destinations.

For high and heavy ro-ro cargo, JAXPORT features a one-acre paved storage lot with reinforced concrete.
