PortMiami’s largest cargo terminal and carrier, Seaboard Marine, has added a new direct service between Miami FL, Guayaquil, Ecuador; Callao, Peru; and Paita, Peru. The weekly service is scheduled to start in early August and will be supported by three dedicated vessels transiting via the Panama Canal to and from Ecuador and Peru.

“Our customers, which appreciate the high level of service and convenience at PortMiami, have been requesting faster transit times to and from Ecuador and Peru,” said Edward Gonzalez, Seaboard Marine president. “This new weekly service does exactly that by providing more rapid southbound transit to Guayaquil, Callao and Paita from Florida. Moreover, the new northbound transit times to PortMiami are unmatched by other carrier and are ideal for the transportation of both dry and refrigerated cargoes from both Peru and Ecuador.”

“We are very pleased to welcome Seaboard Marine’s new service between Miami and South America,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A Gimenez. “Seaboard Marine is a trade leader in the Western Hemisphere, and its new service will enhance cargo offerings at PortMiami.”

“PortMiami provides its customers with fast, efficient, but most importantly, reliable service critical for the delivery of time-sensitive shipments,” said Juan M Kuryla, PortMiami director and CEO. “We proudly welcome Seaboard Marine’s new service to Miami and thank them for trusting the PortMiami team.”
