Seaboard Marine wishes to advise our valued customers we are tracking Hurricane Dorian which continues to strengthen. At this time, the path of the storm has not affected our offices or vessel schedules.
The M/V Ranger Voyage 332 and M/V Patriot Voyage 197, scheduled to arrive at Port Miami on Sunday, September 1, will likely be delayed in their arrival due to a possible port closure.
PortMiami is fully open today but is now under U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) readiness condition “X-Ray,” which has accelerated our preparations to protect our facilities, equipment, and cargo. It is expected that condition “Yankee” will be imposed tomorrow afternoon, Saturday, August 31, which will close our PortMiami facility. In anticipation of a possible landfall next Tuesday, we have made the following adjustments to our operations which will require, in many cases, earlier cargo cut-offs.
Intermodal/Trucking Provided by Seaboard Marine:

As the trajectory and strength of Dorian continue to develop and in anticipation of a possible landfall in Florida on Tuesday, we will continue to monitor and provide updates as developments occur. The safety of our staff, crews, vessels, and our customer’s cargo is always of the utmost importance.
We appreciate the patience and support of our customers during the 2019 Hurricane Season.
