Jacksonville, Florida – American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier (ARC) transported multiple U.S. Army Logistics units onboard M/V Honor from Szczecin, Poland to Jacksonville, Florida. These units were redeploying after their six-month rotation in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve with NATO allies. The shipment consisted of more than 400 pieces of equipment, which included 240 vehicles. These Active Duty, Reserve, and National Guard units will ultimately return to their home stations at Fort Hood, Texas; Lansing, Michigan; Ogden, Utah; and Billings, Montana.
Tim Fletcher, ARC Manager for Customer Care stated, “This is just another great example of the fantastic level of cooperation and teamwork between ARC, the military and the Port of Jacksonville – ensuring that no cargo was damaged during the operation and that accurate in-transit visibility was provided to Surface Deployment and Distribution Command and the redeploying units.”
The M/V Honor is one of the most capable commercial vessels in the global fleet with a 120-metric ton stern ramp, a main deck height of 15 feet (4.6 meters), and 216,171 square feet of militarily useful capacity.
