Mexico Service Expanding.
March 15, 2007
Seaboard Marine will soon be adding a second vessel to its liner service from Mexico to Latin America and the Caribbean. Starting in early April, the M/V Captain P will join the Seaboard Explorer II to double the vessel capacity. Further, even by adding the port of Veracruz, Mexico as a new scheduled port of call, sailing frequency will improve from every fifteen days to every ten days.
The new Itinerary is Houston, Altamira (Mexico), Cartagena (Colombia), Veracruz (Mexico) and then returning to Houston.
David Labbe, VP-Gulf Service, said “We started the Houston-Mexico-Colombia service less than a year ago and are extremely pleased with our liftings. Customers have been requesting a second vessel and we are pleased to accommodate these growing volumes while also adding Veracruz as a new port call.”
Labbe added that Seaboard can carry cargo from Veracruz not only to Houston and Cartagena but also other major ports in the Seaboard network such as Puerto Cabello (Venezuela), Rio Haina (Dominican Republic), Valparaiso (Chile), Callao (Peru) and Port of Spain (Trinidad).
