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).
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".
