"Because ports are
nodes along the
logistics supply chain,
it's absolutely vital
that ports have strong
relationships with the
logistics components
that they can't control,
whether it's trucking
companies, ocean
carriers, railroads, other
vendors and service
providers."

that when his port was approached about
adding LNG (liquefied natural gas). "I
didn't even know how to spell it."
There was a learning curve, for sure,
as LNG has grown as an alternative fuel.
JAXPORT was an obvious choice to explore
it, given its proximity to Puerto Rico. Since
much of the 1,200 miles between the two
is along the U.S. coast, ships must operate in an emission control area. Reducing
negative impacts on the environment were
the primary drivers for LNG, Stubbs said.
LNG is typically regarded as the cleanest
burning fossil fuel.
"We decided that we would do everything we could to facilitate the use of LNG
in Jacksonville," Stubbs said. "That's really
what we are: facilitators. The private industry is the leader in the LNG movement. It
happens to be maritime related. We've just

made it as simple as possible for vendors
to provide this."
Two liquefaction facilities have been
constructed and permitting has begun on
a third. The facilities provide fuel for two
shipping lines, TOTE Maritime Puerto
Rico and Crowley Maritime Corporation.
TOTE already is fueling the ships and
Crowley is expected to begin doing so later
this year. The liquefaction facilities are
about 40 miles apart, Stubbs said. Both
shipping lines are JAXPORT tenants.
In some ways, JAXPORT has benefited
from luck and location - with the two maritime companies driving the LNG process
forward. It is setting the port up for longterm success. "As the marine industry
builds or retrofits more ships to LNG, they
know they can get fuel at Jacksonville and
they know they have multiple suppliers to
