USA: New Hanjin Terminal Waits for Dredging
By linking the JaxPort with Asian trade lanes, Hanjin’s planned terminal and the TraPac terminal would boost cargo trade, reports jacksonville.com.
After eighteen months the work on the cargo terminal in Jacksonville remains on hold until it’s clear how deep the ship channel will be.
Hanjin Senior Vice President Mike Radak said last week that until “there is dredging to get to deeper water, it’s status quo.”
The several hundred million dollars deepening costs would be split between the federal government and JaxPort.
