11,000 Tons of Aluminum Ingots Unloaded at Talleyrand Marine Terminal
Longshoremen at JAXPORT’s Talleyrand Marine Terminal are busy unloading 11,000 tons of aluminum ingots, the largest shipment of its kind at the port in more than five years. The aluminum is being moved by JAXPORT tenant Seaonus, which offers full spectrum logistics services to or from anywhere in the world.
The aluminum was shipped break-bulk, or on pallets, a cost-saving for larger shipments such as this one. JAXPORT’s reputation in the break-bulk business helped to secure this shipment.
The aluminum, which arrived today from South America is headed to plants near St. Augustine and along Florida’s Gulf Coast where the ingots will be smelted and used in manufacturing products such as cans, signs and automobile parts.
