New York-based short sea container shipping operator Green Shipping Line (GSL) and Moran Iron Works (MIW) have signed a teaming agreement to construct Jones Act feeder vessels for the U.S. coastal trade.

GSL says that the company plans to build these feeders to ”offer shippers reliable, economic and frequent transport for containers and trailered cargos between U.S. ports.” 

“We are thrilled to be working with Tom Moran and his team of visionary thinkers,” said Percy R. Pyne IV, Founding Partner of Green Shipping Line. “Together, we will build a fleet of state of the art, energy efficient, Jones Act feeder/short sea vessels for US coastal trade.”
