PortMiami’s largest cargo terminal and carrier, Seaboard Marine, has added a new direct service between Miami and Latin America calling Guayaquil, Ecuador, Callao, Peru and Paita, Peru.
The weekly service is scheduled to start in early August and will be supported by three dedicated vessels transiting via the Panama Canal to and from Ecuador and Peru.
“Our customers who appreciate the high level of service and convenience at PortMiami, have been requesting faster transit times to and from Ecuador and Peru,” said Edward Gonzalez, Seaboard Marine president.
“This new weekly service does exactly that by providing more rapid southbound transit to Guayaquil, Callao and Paita from Florida. Moreover, the new northbound transit times to PortMiami are unmatched by other carrier and are ideal for the transportation of both dry and refrigerated cargoes from both Peru and Ecuador,” said Gonzalez.
“PortMiami provides its customers with fast, efficient, but most importantly, reliable service critical for the delivery of time sensitive shipments,” said Juan M. Kuryla, PortMiami director and ceo. “We proudly welcome Seaboard Marine’s new service to Miami and thank them for trusting the PortMiami team.”
The dedicated weekly vessels depart each Friday with arrival at Guayaquil every Saturday, Callao every Sunday and Paita every Wednesday. Northbound cargo to PortMiami, arriving every Thursday with same day availability, will depart from Guayaquil every Friday, Paita every Wednesday and Callao every Tuesday.
Also, effective 23 August 2017, Seaboard Marine will begin offering two weekly sailings to Costa Rica. The first sailing will offer a three-day transit to Puerto Limon departing from PortMiami every Wednesday with cargo availability Monday mornings.
