The Jacksonville Port Authority and long-time tenant Trailer Bridge have signed a new 10-year lease to continue the container line’s operations at the Florida port’s Blount Island Marine Terminal.
The contract also includes two additional five-year options.
“We look forward to continuing a long and healthy relationship with the Port of Jacksonville,” said Chris J. Dombalis, Trailer Bridge’s CEO, in a written statement. “This contract solidifies our plans to move forward here in Jacksonville.”
Roy Schleicher, Jaxport’s executive vice president and chief commercial officer, added: “For more than 20 years, Trailer Bridge has been an important part of Jaxport’s prominence in the Puerto Rico and Caribbean market. As one of our major tenants, we’re delighted to have Trailer Bridge onboard at Jaxport for years to come.”
Trailer Bridge has operated at Jaxport since the company’s founding in 1991. The Jacksonville-based firm offers cargo transportation services to and from Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.
