Charleston, South Carolina – American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier (ARC) shipped more than 700 pieces of military equipment on M/V Resolve from Kuwait to Joint Base Charleston where it was quickly discharged at the Transportation Core Dock (TC Dock) by the Military Surface Deployment & Distribution Command’s 841st Transportation Battalion. The equipment was primarily from the Army Prepositioned Stock 5 (APS – 5) and is being shipped to multiple military depots in the U.S. for refit and repair.
“This was a very smooth operation and went according to plan,” said Captain Justin Hajduk (pictured), Captain of ARC’s M/V Resolve, “and there was great cooperation between all parties.” This was Captain Hajduk’s maiden voyage as an ARC Captain – congratulations on a job well done!
The M/V Resolve is an extremely capable vessel with an overall length of 623 feet (190 meters). The vessel has a stern ramp capable of carrying loads weighing up to 120 metric tons and 216,000 square feet of militarily useful capacity.
ARC provides global logistics and shipping services to the U.S. Government. ARC and its U.S. affiliates own and manage the largest U.S.-flag roll-on roll-off (Ro-Ro) fleet. This includes providing American-owned, managed, and crewed Ro-Ro shipping and intermodal services committed to the requirements of the Department of Defense, other U.S. Government departments and agencies, and commercial customers.
