Atlantic Coastal Shipping (ACS), a newly-formed shipping company based in Miami, Florida, plans to start trading soon with a domestic RoRo/container vessel.

As informed, the vessel is planned to be deployed on a weekly cabotage route along the US Atlantic East Coast corridor between the Port of Miami and Port Newark.

Additionally, the company intends to start a regular weekly Caribbean feeder service with a multi purpose twin deck geared container vessel. The service will cover three hubs in the Caribbean and South Atlantic –  Kingston Container Terminal in Jamaica, DP World Caucedo in the Dominican Republic and The Freeport Container Port in the Bahamas.

The company explained that the project to launch new services is consistent with the Marine Highway Program that considers the movement of cargo by sea along America’s East Coast reducing air pollution and traffic congestion on I-95.

The first sailings of the ACS’ new services are to start in mid/late November, Armando M. Bustillo, the company’s CEO, told World Maritime News.

The exact date of launching is yet to be announced.
