In November 2016, SeaLand, a unit of the Maersk Group, announced two new calls to its improved North Atlantic Express (NAE) service that includes the Port of Turbo in Colombia and Puerto Moin in Costa Rica.
The service is designed to create more connections across the SeaLand network, serving the west coast of South America, as well as Central America, the Caribbean and US East Coast. Shippers requiring refrigerated services across this network will benefit from competitive transit times, state-of-the art reefer equipment, and highly trained professionals monitoring the cold chain every step of the way.
Southbound voyages from the US East Coast began December 12 with the first arrival set for December 23 at Turbo, Colombia. The first northbound voyage of the revised NAE rotation begins December 23 with the MV Margarete Schulte, Voyage 1701 and departure from Puerto Moin, Costa Rica on December 27 for arrival January 2, 2017 at Philadelphia PA.
The North Atlantic Express now delivers:
•An improved, fast all-water service connecting Turbo, Colombia and Puerto Moin, Costa Rica to and from the US East Coast ports.
•Maximized product shelf life with multiple touch points in the southern and northeast United States supported by hand-picked terminals dedicated to the fresh product market. These include the newly upgraded Packer Avenue Marine Terminal in Philadelphia and New York Container Terminal at Staten Island.
•Reliable coverage from the west coast South America feeder network to and from Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia—providing seamless connections via a hub in Balboa, Panama.
•Network access to markets throughout the Americas via a hub in Manzanillo, Panama to the US West Coast ports of Hueneme and Los Angeles, as well as the US Gulf of Mexico ports of Houston and New Orleans.
