New Cargo Business Lands at Port Canaveral

[ January 7, 2021   //   ]

Yara North America, a leading crop nutrition solutions provider, has launched an expansion of its southeast U.S. distribution of premium crop nutrition products from Port Canaveral in partnership with Ambassador Services International.
“This is solid cargo business for our Port and a great business win for our partners at Ambassador,” said Port CEO Capt. John Murray. “Our central east coast of Florida location and ASI’s recent expansion at our Port provided Yara with a winning opportunity to more efficiently support crop growers throughout the southeastern United States.”
The expansion to Port Canaveral complements Yara’s existing distribution footprint on the east coast in Wilmington, NC and Savannah, GA. A.R. Savage & Son, LLC of Tampa, FL is the steamship agent for Yara North America at Port Canaveral.
“We have built our business through long-term partnerships with our customers,” said Brian Hubert, President of Ambassador Services International, which was recently acquired by Enstructure LLC. “Yara is a global leader in the fertilizer industry and we look forward to providing best-in-class service to Yara for years to come.”
Ambassador Services International, one of Port Canaveral’s largest terminal operators, will enable Yara to improve storage and handling of bulk materials and bagging in both bulk and 50 lb. bags to deliver the company’s high-quality premium products, such as YaraLiva® TROPICOTE® that meet the crop nutrition needs of all end-users. Additionally, ASI’s convenient ground transportation and loading facilities are expected to keep load time at a minimum.
“We’re committed to providing our customers and end-users with high-quality products as well as efficient, reliable and safe operations related to product handling and distribution. Ambassador’s high-quality, well managed assets at Port Canaveral supports our efforts to improve quality, storage and distribution of premium products.” said Steve Rodgers, VP Supply Chain Yara North America.
