The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

Se­aboard Marine re­cently made pub­lic the en­hance­ments to its Mi­ami, Florida Eastern Caribbean ocean freight ser­vice. The ves­sel ro­ta­tion will now in­clude a new port call at Cas­tries, Saint Lucia. The new weekly ser­vice, sup­ported by two con­tainer ships, com­menced on Thurs­day, Jan­uary 26, 2017, de­part­ing from Port Mi­ami, Florida with a day tran­sit to Cas­tries.

Speak­ing about the new ser­vice, Stephen Bell, Vice Pres­i­dent of Se­aboard Marine’s Caribbean Di­vi­sion said, “This di­rect, weekly ser­vice en­hance­ment gives our val­ued cus­tomers an early de­par­ture and the short­est avail­able tran­sit time to Saint Lucia. With same day cargo avail­abil­ity at des­ti­na­tion, we are confident we will bring in­creased ef­fi­ciency to this mar­ket.

“With the com­bined ca­pa­bil­i­ties of our Port Mi­ami fa­cil­ity, our ware­house and our cross-dock op­er­a­tions in Mi­ami, we have the nec­es­sary in­fra­struc­ture to han­dle cargo of all va­ri­eties and from any ori­gin within the United States.”

The doc­u­men­ta­tion and de­liv­ery cut-off at Port Mi­ami, Florida is Wed­nes­day at 12:00 p.m. The ves­sels de­part weekly on Thurs­day with an early morning ar­rival at Cas­tries ev­ery Tues­day. The 5-day tran­sit and early Tues­day morning avail­abil­ity are a unique con­ve­nience for cus­tomers. The ser­vice sup­ports equip­ment types of all sizes in ad­di­tion to less-than-con­tainer load cargo.

Se­aboard Marine has added a di­rect, weekly ser­vice to its ex­ist­ing freight ser­vice from Port Mi­ami to Saint Lucia.
