Shipping Cars To or From Port of San Juan
A-1 Auto Transport Inc. offers car shipping services to all 50 states of the United States of America. Our services are, however, not limited to the 50 states. We also serve the greater part of unincorporated territories of the US including the Free Associated State of Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico is an associated state of America and an island in itself. Its biggest city, San Juan, is also the home town of the biggest port in the region, Port of San Juan.
Natural features of Port of San Juan
The sea port is the largest in Puerto Rico, located at the San Juan Bay, which borders the North Atlantic Ocean. It offers deep water harbors that facilitate international trading through the Port of San Juan. Our services to clients in Puerto Rico mostly consist of shipping cars to or from Port of San Juan.
The San Juan Bay has several docks, all which are located along the San Antonio Canal. The canal is narrow compared to larger ports in the US but is still large enough to provide seaway to major cargo ships bringing in cars and shipping cars out of the United States Waters.
The port is enormous, with a total of 16 piers. Eight of them are used for passenger ships while the other eight are used for cargo shipping. The eight cargo piers handle considerably large tonnage, enough to rank it number 51 on the list of US ports handling the largest trade numbers in both foreign and domestic trades.
Cargo facilities of Port San Juan
The port’s eight cargo piers are spread over the southern side of San Juan Bay. Five of them are located in Puerto Nuevo district, which offers vast areas for heavy port activities. The other three are built on the neighboring town of Guaynabo. The vastness of the cargo facilities; spreading over two entire towns, should paint a rough picture of the heavy cargo activity that takes place there.
The eight terminals are all equipped with state of the art port equipment. The Puerto Rico Ports Authority, through the executive branch of the US government, invested heavily in the cargo facilities of Port of San Juan. The port is equipped with Ro-Ro equipment, Container and Bulk cargo cranes, mobile cranes, flat rack equipment, as well as loading and offloading equipment. Shipping cars to or from port of San Juan is facilitated by these equipment. We are thus able to comfortably offer both containerized and Roll-on/Roll-off car shipping services.
