Sea Star Line Exploring Addition of Barge Service to Puerto Rico Trade
December 15, 2014 – Sea Star Line, LLC today announced its intention to add a weekly container barge service to its existing sailing schedule. The container barge service would complement Sea Star’s existing twice-weekly vessel offering with a total additional capacity of 800 forty-foot equivalent units (FEUS). This new service would commence early in 2015.
“Sea Star Line is committed to meeting the needs of Puerto Rico. We know that people depend on the weekly shipments that supply food, medicine and other commodities,” noted Tim Nolan, President of Sea Star Line. “We want to ensure that changes happening in the market do not negatively affect daily life in Puerto Rico and are exploring the best options for consistent, reliable service in 2015” he continued.
Sea Star Line is taking proactive steps to ensure sufficient capacity for cargo in the months ahead. More information will be available as details are finalized in the coming weeks.
