Top 10 Florida contrainer lines
The Florida Shipper Magazine’s article on the Top 10 Florida Container Lines places SeaFreight Line in the number Six position as ranked by overall cargo volume carried through Florida Ports for the period Apr/04-Mar/05 versus Apr/05-Mar/06.
In the ranking by percentage growth however, SeaFreight Line ranks Second with an 11.7 % growth for the same time period.
While many Carriers with larger overall cargo volume are showing minimal or even negative growth, SeaFreight is well on its way to a possible record year in cargo carried.
“Although we do not place emphasis on volume as compared with revenue, we are nevertheless pleased with our growth rather than our overall volume ranking in the market” said David Ross VP Marketing for the Company.
“It’s testimony to the faith that Shippers place in us to move their Cargo. We are working diligently to improve the Container fleet with the purchase of an additional 1,000 new Containers in various sizes which is in addition to the 1,200 new Containers we already ordered earlier in the year, as well as increasing the number of Chassis in the system. When the business comes, you have to be in a position to handle it and we have been keeping up with the growth while anticipating even more growth as we go forward” Ross continued.
The Line presently operates 4 x 1,000 TEU Vessels in its weekly services between Florida the Caribbean and North Coast South American Trades.
