Starting Oct 10, 2015, NYK will begin transport service from Port Canaveral to Central and South America, expanding market reach into this vital region for Central Florida auto and heavy equipment businesses. The first vessel will be the MV Neptune Leader V 65.
“With the relatively short trucking distance between Port Canaveral and the numerous auto and heavy equipment auctions located in Central Florida, the NYK service will provide area businesses with cost-effective options and positions us competitively with other Florida seaports,” said Alberto Cabrera, Port Canaveral’s Senior Director of Cargo Business Development.
“With more than 20 years of working with Port Canaveral on the Central American service, we are excited to work with NYK Line to make Port Canaveral Orlando’s gateway to Central America,” said Brian J. Brennan, President of Cartainer Ocean Line, Inc.

"NYK looks forward to adding Port Canaveral to its service scope to meet our customers growing demands" said Gary J. Hurley, VP Sales-NYK Line RORO Division.

Ambassador Services Inc. will be the vessel agent and terminal operator and Ceres will provide the stevedoring for NYK, which will call at Port Canaveral once a month.
