Seaboard Marine established its headquarters in Miami, Florida in 1983. Initially operating out of West Palm Beach, primary vessel operations moved to PortMiami in 1987 where it remains today. Seaboard Marine began by offering direct service between PortMiami and Central America. By 1995, service expanded to include many countries in the Caribbean Basin and South America. With service offerings spanning the Western Hemisphere, over the next decade, the company would add service connectivity to three additional domestic ports in Houston, New Orleans, and Brooklyn, respectively. With the most recent connection in Philadelphia, Seaboard Marine’s steady growth is attributed to capitalizing on unique and strategic opportunities to partner with customers of all sizes.
