Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. (ONE) has selected Port Everglades in southern Florida as the U.S. port of call for its new Florida Latin Express (FLX) service that will bring refrigerated fruits, vegetables and seafood from the farms and waters of South America to South Florida.

ONE announced its FLX service will use Florida International Terminal (FIT) located for its first foray into the North-South trade lanes. The FLX service is expected to launch this month.

"With our prominence in the perishables market and efficient terminal operators such as FIT, we are the natural port of choice to serve as the South Florida home for the FLX service," said Jonathan Daniels, Port Everglade’s CEO and director, in a press release.

The port handles an average of 1 million 20-foot equivalent units annually and has direct access to the interstate highway system. Florida East Coast Railway's near-dock, 43-acre intermodal container transfer facility at the port connects cargo with 70% of the U.S. population within 72 hours, port officials said.
