Atlantic Coastal Shipping, LLC is an American Company that will soon commence trading with an American Flag (RO/CO) vessel on a regular weekly cabotage route along the US Atlantic East Coast Corridor between the Port of Miami (FL) and Port Newark (NJ), in concert with an also regular weekly Caribbean Feeder Service with a multipurpose twin deck geared container vessel calling the Three Main Transshipment Hubs in the Caribbean and South Atlantic: Kingston Container Terminal (Jamaica), DP World Caucedo (Dominican Republic) and The Freeport Container Port (Bahamas).

Cargo mix will consist of all types of Domestic Private and US Government cargoes, plus cargo from foreign carriers calling the Transshipment Hubs, Port of Miami and Port Newark, soon with Post Panamax vessels, loading their landed boxes after they have cleared US Customs/Homeland Security.

Our project 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.

“If the coastal trade from Florida to New England were moved from trucks to coastal shipping we could easily save about one million barrels of oil per day. The nearly 2,000 mile-long corridor along I-95 already handles more than 5.3 billion tons of truck traffic annually. And with the amount of truck traffic to double on the interstate by 2035 as reported by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials the problem will be immense".
