Lebanon-headquartered Swiss Shipping Line and Jacksonville-based Africa Car Carrier have formed a joint venture company in an effort to to strengthen their RoRo services in the U.S.
The new company, operating under the name of Blue Alliance Shipping, will combine resources and experience of the two founding companies to offer RoRo services on the U.S. East Coast.
Blue Alliance Shipping’s main destination remains the west coast of Africa, with other destinations in the Mediterranean and Middle East to follow.
Next to the usual cargo handling from terminal up to delivery on quay at destination, Blue Alliance will offer real time cargo tracking.
The company expects its first sailing to be by the end of this month on the Swallow Ace – V714.
