Using stacks of containers from the Seaboard Marine terminal as a backdrop, the America Free Trade Bus held a press event at the Port of Miami yesterday to celebrate the importance of free trade in the United States. This tour, sponsored by the Consumer Electronic Association, is a part of the association’s national educational initiative to help all Americans understand the importance of trade in creating jobs and driving economic growth.

The bus tour of 28 cities was launched last week by Mayor Bloomberg in New York City.

Seaboard is proud to have had this important message of free trade at our facilities in Miami. Seaboard is supportive of these educational efforts including providing unbiased information that we believe will assist in efforts to soon pass the Colombia Free Trade Agreement.
