Seaboard Marine wishes to advise our valued customers that the health and welfare of all of employees, at all locations and aboard all ships, is our top priority. As COVID-19 spreads to more communities and countries, we know that you may be concerned how this impacts how you do business and interact with us.
Seaboard Marine is no stranger to business continuity, and similar to hurricane-related threats that can, from time-to-time, affect our ability to provide timely service, we are always prepared in advance.
At this time, all of our current office and cargo facilities, both in the United States and overseas, are open and operating. Our vessel, terminal and trucking operations are functioning normally. Please specifically note that PortMiami, although closed for cruise traffic, is fully open for cargo activities.
We have actively engaged all business continuity leaders to review and comprehensively update steps and policies within our robust plan. Actions taken include:
- Following all regulations and guidance from international, federal and local officials including the WHO, CDC, the U.S. Coast Guard and Customs and Border Protection.
- Most employees in the main Miami office are now either working from home or at alternate locations. Considerable recent technology investments, including cloud computing, have allowed this to occur.
- Office sanitizing protocols are in place including complete fogging/cleaning of our main office in Miami on March 15. Office visitors are discouraged.
- All visitors must complete a questionnaire, provided by their Seaboard Marine host before entry is allowed.
Seaboard Marine continues to fully service our customers. We appreciate and value your support.
