June 3 - NYK Line North America has loaded the first of several shipments of new ambulances at Jaxport's Blount Island Marine Terminal for delivery to Saudia Arabia.

The vehicles are part of a 400 ambulance order placed by the Saudi Red Crescent Authority - a humanitarian organisation that provides emergency medical services and offers first aid in Saudi Arabia.

The ambulances were manufactured by Wheeled Coach in Winter Park, Florida, which designs medical attack, rescue and fire emergency vehicles for departments around the world.

Wheeled Coach handled the road transport of the ambulances to Jacksonville, with UniWorld Logistics coordinating ocean bookings through NYK.
