The line-up includes the 280-horsepower Giulia and Giulia Ti as well as the 505-horsepower Giulia Quadrifoglio. The vehicles are transported to JAXPORT via Grimaldi Lines. APS Stevedoring handles the offloading and the vehicles are processed at JAXPORT by AMPORTS.

The first shipments of Giulia sedans began arriving earlier this year and were processed for immediate delivery to dealerships. JAXPORT has a long-standing partnership with FCA US, serving as a major import/export port for many of the company’s well-known brands and models.

Jacksonville is one of the nation’s busiest ports for total vehicle handling. In 2016, JAXPORT moved more than 636,000 vehicles.
