New Port of Miami Entrance Officially Unveiled.
June 26, 2008
June 26, 2008. Seaboard Marine proudly participated in a ceremony this morning at the entrance of the Port of Miami. Miami-Dade County, in partnership with the Florida Foreign Trade Association (FFTA) and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), built a new State-of-the-Art entrance featuring a Globe Memorial/Tribute honoring 194 industry pioneer men and women from all transportation modes: maritime, air, trucking and rail. Across from the Freedom Tower, the tribute monument is located just east of Biscayne Boulevard on Port Boulevard at the entrance of the Port of Miami.
Bill Johnson, Port of Miami Director said, “This project is the culmination of eight years of dedicated and continuous work in having a monument erected honoring individuals with a minimum of 30 years of service and tenacious contributions to the transportation industry. These pioneers helped weave international trade into the fabric of our thriving community and we are grateful for their contributions.”
Several of Seaboard Marine’s employees, current and former, are proud members of this elite pioneer list. Former employees include John Lynch, Olga Zacarias, and Tony Torres. Current employees include Jose Perez-Jones and Mary Lozano.
Seaboard Marine has been a true partner in this endeavor with the Port of Miami, FFTA and the FDOT and has its name etched at the entrance's seating wall directly behind the tribute. Seaboard Marine recognizes and salutes all members of this pioneer team. Many of them are and have been our loyal customers for many years. We sincerely thank and appreciate their support to our company and community.
