Volkswagen to Begin Shipping Thru JaxPort
Over 100 new jobs are expected to be generated as VW begins using JaxPort for shipping vehicles. The company already has a parts distribution center in Jax, and will now use the port to bring “VW’s from Mexico and Audi’s from Germany”. JaxPort is a big player in the automotive shipping business, having exported more automobiles last year than any other port in the nation (450K vehicles in 2014). Timothy Gibbons with the Jacksonville Business Journal has the story.
