Seaboard Marine informs that the new gate facility allows trucks to flow directly from Port Boulevard into the ninety (90) acre Seaboard Marine terminal.

The new gates, at the northeast corner of the Seaboard Marine terminal, will benefit Seaboard’s operations and trucker turnaround through streamlining gate processing while improving overall safety and security.

Features of the new facility include multiple scales for inbound cargoes and “reversible lanes”. This provides Seaboard Marine added flexibility in gate operations, providing as many as seven (7) inbound lanes during peak inbound traffic periods, and as many as seven (7) outbound lanes when needed.

Seaboard explains that by locating the new gates on the east end of the Seaboard Marine cargo terminal reduces the amount of distance and time needed to move throughout the terminal to drop off and pick up containers. Further, the new consolidated entrance will provide one general location to receive and handle cargoes of all types, including container deliveries and car carriers.
