Crowley Liner Services will launch a new, dedicated, direct, weekly RoRo service between Port Everglades, Fla., and Kingston, Jamaica, beginning January 7, 2000. The new service
, previously handled through Crowley's Central America Southern
Zone Service, will reduce transit times and increase capacity for customers shipping between Port Everglades and Kingston.
"We've dedicated a Ro/Ro vessel specifically for this service in order to accommodate customers shipping increased cargo volumes both northbound and southbound," said Rinus Schepen, senior vice-president and general manager, Latin America. "With weekly departures on Friday evenings from Port Everglades
, customers will have ample time to deliver time-sensitive cargo for arrival in Kingston on Monday mornings. Conversely, departures from Kingston on Mondays will make it possible for shipments to arrive in Port Everglades on Thursdays."
