For the fifth consecutive year, the Jamaica Exporters Association (JEA) honored Seaboard Marine as their preferred shipping partner at the annual JEA banquet held recently at the Pegasus hotel in Kingston. Seaboard was presented the award for “Best Shipping Service, 2011”. Seaboard previously won the award in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Culminating the JEA’s National Exporters Month activities, the “Best Shipping Service” award is presented to the ocean carrier that provides the overall best service for promoting exports for Jamaican shippers.

Mrs. Corah-Ann Robertson Sylvester said, “To once again be recognized by the JEA is a testament to the pride and professionalism of Seaboard Marine personnel, not just in Jamaica, but at destination ports in the Caribbean, Miami and New York. We appreciate the ongoing support of our many valued customers as we always strive to serve their unique and personalized needs.”

Seaboard Marine provides two sailings per week for dry and refrigerated cargo to the United States (both Miami and New York) from Kingston and a weekly service from Montego Bay. In addition, Seaboard Marine has an excellent service to Georgetown, Grand Cayman as well as many other Caribbean ports. These multiple services, combined with Seaboard Marine’s system of certified export procedures, provide the framework to deliver high-quality Jamaican products to overseas markets quickly, safely and reliably.
