VIDEO: TraPac Welcomes Its Largest Vessel Ever

JAXPORT’s TraPac Container Terminal at Dames Point welcomed the largest vessel to ever call on Jacksonville’s seaport two days ago.

The 8,100 TEU (containers) MOL Competence traveled from Southeast Asia through the Suez Canal and called on other U.S. East Coast ports before arriving at TraPac.

The Competence is more than 1,000 feet in length and at a breadth of 150 feet, it is too large to fit through the current Panama Canal locks.

TraPac Jacksonville Vice President and General Manager Dennis Kelly said the Competence and other post-Panamax sized ships calling on Jacksonville as part of a regular rotation through the Suez Canal demonstrate the port’s strategic advantages for accommodating the larger ships calling on the U.S. East Coast.

Jacksonville’s channel is currently 40 foot deep with design plans in the works to deepen the St. Johns River to 47 feet.
