Seaboard Improves Aruba and Curacao Services
October 22, 2011
Seaboard Marine has recently upgraded its service to Aruba and Curacao by adding a new direct weekly sailing to/from the Port of Miami. Two versatile ships will be matched to provide a sailing every Friday from Miami. Effective immediately, the M/V Heinrich J, a cellular container vessel, will depart Miami each Friday on a fortnightly basis. The Heinrich J will be paired with the M/V Seaboard Star. Departing Miami fortnightly on alternating Fridays, the Seaboard Star, with a deadweight of 12,169 tons, can carry both RoRo cargoes as well as containers.
With this service enhancement of two dedicated vessels, Seaboard Marine will now be able to carry cargoes of all types directly to the Netherland Antilles from Miami every Friday.
Bob Schicchi, Seaboard Marine Vice President, said, “Many valued customers had been requesting Seaboard to provide a convenient end of the week direct sailing from Miami to Aruba and Curacao and we are pleased that we are now able to do so. These improvements in Seaboard’s sailing frequencies as well as the RoRo capability of the Seaboard Star will be of particular benefit to construction firms as well as importers of heavy cargoes and rolling stock to the Netherland Antilles. In addition, we can carry cargoes to Aruba and Curacao from other nearby Seaboard ports of call such as Colombia and Panama.”
