Launched in 2005, the M/V Jean Anne is the first fully enclosed roll-on/roll-off ("Ro/Ro") ship or pure car/truck carrier ("PCTC") to serve Hawaii from the Mainland, and the first-ever modern PCTC built in a U.S. shipyard. The Jean Anne was constructed in response to the desires of our automotive customers who recognize the PCTC for its efficiency and low damage ratios. The modern PCTC is the mode of ocean transport that delivers your cargo damage free with no exposure to tight container doorways or ocean salt spray.
