Car manufacturer Porsche has announced that Jaxport will be its port of entry for new cars bound for dealers in the Southeastern United States from October 2015.
Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) vehicle logistics manager Howard Chang said: “Porsche conducted an extensive bid process and found Jaxport and the selected processing company, Amports, offered the optimum combination of efficiency, quality and service.”
This follows Volkswagen’s announcement in February that it was moving its import facility for cars and SUVs and its South-East US distribution operations to Jacksonville.
Porsche vehicles travel on the same vessels as Audi, Bentley and Volkswagen vehicles bound for the region.
Jaxport handles the vast majority of the cargo of the Port of Jacksonville in Florida.
