Antillean Marine Shifts Services to Port Everglades

Antillean Marine Shipping Corp., a long-time Miami River ocean carrier company, is expanding its business to Broward County’s Port Everglades. The family-owned and operated company has been one of the Miami River’s anchor marine cargo companies since 1963. The move to Port Everglades will enable Antillean to handle higher cargo volumes and transshipment opportunities with other carriers. Antillean Marine will be operating from Port Everglades Terminals (PET) with regular liner service to ports in Haiti and the Dominican Republic and Panama. Port Everglades’ officials estimate Antillean Marine will bring to the South Florida seaport over 60,000 containers annually. The first Antillean ship to call Port Everglades is the Michael J. Voyage 1, a 600-TEU ship, which will make multiple calls from Port Everglades and facilitate services to the ports in Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Panama.
