SeaFreight cargo volume rises
Miami operated SeaFreight Line, was ranked 44th in volume in the ranking of Shipping Carriers involved in business between the United States and World Ports for the calendar year 2002. This was up one notch from the previous year's ranking of 45th. SeaFreight Line moved 20,150 TEUS during 2002.
"It was a slightly better position than 2001" said David Ross, Vice President of Marketing for the Company.
"The trend is much stronger so far this year and should bump us up further when the rankings for the full year of 2003 come out next Spring. We're on target for over 23,000 TEUS in U.S. Trade this year (approx. 26,000 TEUS including non-U.S. trade). The growth has come in traditional markets like Jamaica, Guyana & Suriname and the addition of Barbados as a port of call. We're a small company but the trends are positive when you see what's happening globally. We're very excited about the fact that this means we are doing things right and more Shippers are putting their confidence in us." said Ross.
