SeaLand Enhances NAE-North Atlantic Express Service

[ November 18, 2016   //   ]

SeaLand announces two new, direct, all-water NAE service connections with the addition of port calls in Turbo and Puerto Moin. The expanded NAE service features expedited service between the Caribbean, Costa Rica and Colombia and the U.S. East Coast, including Philadelphia and New York, as well as other major markets in the U.S. Southeast. The first sailing of the expanded NAE is December 11th from Philadelphia; the vessel arrives in Turbo, Colombia December 23rd.

SeaLand’s NAE service caters to refrigerated (reefer) shipments, such as pineapples and bananas, offering state-of-the-art reefer equipment, competitive transit times and dedicated reefer freight handling terminals that ensure maximum market value and shelf-life for fresh products. Two examples are the newly upgraded Packer Avenue Marine Terminal in Philadelphia and New York Container Terminal, Staten Island.

SeaLand moves West Coast of South America cargo on its extensive feeder network which connects to the U.S. East, Gulf and West Coast ports via transshipment at their hub in Manzanillo, Panama.
