Seaboard Marine was built by people with sound character and a long history of excellent commercial practices. With services to more than thirty countries, we continually seek opportunities to improve conditions while reducing our carbon footprint and always committing to positive business practices. As a regional ocean transportation and logistics company, it is vital to understand the importance of being an environmentally aware and responsible company. Our commitment to uphold ourselves can be summarized in the following actions below.
Our Sustainable Approach can be summarized as, being committed to operating in an ecologically sustainable manner by reducing waste and lowering the use of energy and resources. Encouraging suppliers, contractors, clients, and vendors to act in accordance with our environmental strategy. Ensure all employees in the course of their duties act in accordance with our environmental policies. Be aware of all environmental legislation and ensure that regulatory requirements, including those safety-related, are met and improved upon.
Communities in Motion
Seaboard Marine promotes involvement domestically and abroad for each of the locations where we operate. Our employees are the primary factor in helping to determine what projects and events in which we participate. In addition, our Human Resources Department also encourages employee participation in long-standing annual events such as the Jackson Memorial Holiday Toy Drive since 1989, the Mercedes Benz Corporate Run which benefits charity partners since 1998, the Multiple Sclerosis Walk since 2002, and the Miami-Dade County School Supply Drive since 2004.
Seaboard Marine is a generous contributor to various international and local organizations. Many of the charitable donations are made to leading global organizations; however local charities are also a focus of Seaboard Marine’s scope. Seaboard promotes involvement in the U.S. and overseas for each of the locations where we operate. Employees are a driving factor in helping to determine where funds are allocated.
We Give Of Ourselves
Seaboard Marine works closely with governmental agencies to be in the foreground of all disaster relief efforts for the areas where we conduct business. In the Caribbean Basin, this revolves primarily around hurricane and earthquake relief. Agencies such as the American (or International) Red Cross, USAID, Catholic Relief Services, Salesian Missions, Food for the Poor, Project Cure, and the Greater Commission Alliance are assisted in moving urgently needed goods quickly to destinations at a greatly reduced freight rate, or in some instances, free of charge.
