Florida’s Port Everglades will be the first and last U.S. call for SeaLand and APL’s North American Express Service (NAE/ACX) to Latin America beginning August 27, according to SeaLand.
SeaLand, an ocean freight shipping subsidiary of Maersk Line, and APL, a wholly owned subsidiary of Singapore-based Neptune Orient Lines, selected Florida International Terminal, LLC (FIT) at Port Everglades to provide cargo handling and stevedoring services. The new service is expected to generate more than 20,000 container moves annually.
SeaLand/APL’s NAE/ACX service will arrive in Port Everglades as a first-in call every Thursday from Manzanillo, Panama, before sailing to other U.S. East Coast ports and returning on Sundays as a last-out U.S. call before sailing to Cartagena, Colombia.
SeaLand, which Maersk acquired in 1999, opened its headquarters in Broward County, FL, in the city of Miramar, earlier this year.
