Seaboard Marine wishes to advise our valued customers that we are assisting with the recovery efforts of Hurricane Maria which has unfortunately disrupted services in multiple islands. We extend our thoughts and concerns to our friends, colleagues and customers that have been adversely impacted by Maria.
The M/V Seaboard Ocean Voyage 211 has departed Point Lisas, Trinidad and is expected to arrive in Kingston, Jamaica on Sunday, September 24.
The M/V Seaboard Ranger Voyage 245, was delayed due to Hurricane Maria but the vessel has commenced discharge and load operations this morning in Rio, Haina, Dominican Republic.
The AS Angelina, Voyage 1, due to Maria related delays, is now expected next week in Philadelphia (September 27) and Brooklyn (September 28).
The Frisia Inn, Voyage 22, sailed, as usual, yesterday from Miami with normal planned calls to various Caribbean destinations.
Dominican Republic: Our offices in both Rio Haina and Puerto Plata have re-opened. The port in Rio Haina has re-opened this morning and our vessels are already in the port while the port of Puerta Plata has re-opened for terminal services only as the ship channel still remains closed for navigation until the storm impact has been assessed.
St. Maarten: Our facilities remain closed while damages are being assessed. Cargo related activities will hopefully resume this weekend but will likely be slowed due to the significant impact of both Irma and Maria.
Antigua, Haiti, St. Kitts, St. Lucia and Barbados: All facilities are open and operating normally.
As the impacts of Maria continue to emerge, we will provide additional updates as appropriate. Please note that the safety of our staff, crews, vessels and our customer’s cargo is always of the utmost importance.
We apologize in advance for any supply chain disruptions and appreciate the patience and support of our valued customers during this unfortunately active 2017 Hurricane Season.
