Jacksonville-based TOTE Maritime has reported an overall productivity rise at the Port of San Juan as more containers leave the terminal for communities around hurricane-stricken Puerto Rico.
On October 9, the terminal’s productivity reached 87 percent with more than 330 loads of relief and commercial goods leaving the terminal.
The company has been working with a number of partners including the Department of Homeland Security, American Red Cross, FEMA, the Puerto Rican government, the Government’s Elderly Support Team and customers to support their needs as they deliver goods to the island.
TOTE Maritime’s Isla Bella arrived in San Juan on October 10 for the third time since Hurricane Maria made landfall on September 19. The Isla Bella docked with more than 1,060 containers carrying relief and recovery goods for FEMA, utility trucks, communications infrastructure and other critical cargo.
The company’s Perla del Caribe arrived with 1,060 FEUs of cargo on October 7, carrying relief goods, utility trucks, large generators and various equipment for communication and power companies.
TOTE Maritime delivered more than 5,200 containers of goods to the island since Hurricane Maria struck, and is set to deliver an additional 2,000 containers in the coming week.
