Port Everglades Adds Shipping Service to Venezuela and Colombia

Press Release
Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Port Everglades is welcoming a new shipping line with service to Venezuela and Colombia.

Naviera Master Line de Venezuela C.A. will be moving heavy equipment and machinery/rolling stock on a bi-weekly basis from Port Everglades and, as the business grows, plans to offer the service on a weekly basis. The cargo will be handled by St. John’s Shipping Company Inc., a stevedore at Port Everglades for more than two decades.

“We are pleased to add this new service to our fleet at Port Everglades. Master Line’s service will be mainly exports, a testament to the Port’s commitment in expanding exports, which creates more U.S. jobs,” said Chief Executive and Port Director Steven Cernak.

Port Everglades is the leading seaport in Florida for U.S. jobs supported by exports – 79,800 U.S. jobs. Every $1 billion in exports supports approximately 6,000 U.S. jobs, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce. Exports from Port Everglades totalled  $13.3 billion in calendar year 2011.

“With over three generations in the shipping industry, we are delighted to start this new service, which is guided to support the long-time forgotten NVO (Non-Vessel-Operating Common Carrier) and Freight Forwarding community, which truly makes a difference in all trades and services they provide on the supply chain,” said Juan Carlos Esquivel, President of Naviera Master Line.
