 Shipping company SC Line has started up service between Fort Lauderdale's Port Everglades and Cuba, reports Sun Sentinel.

The cargo and cruise vessels no longer require a special license to ply between US and Cuba.
SC Line can serve the Cuban seaports of Mariel and Santiago every two weeks on a route that circles between Florida, Cuba, Panama and Colombia
On 20 September the SC Line vessel Caroline Russ berthed at Mariel in Cuba. It can carry shipping containers.
It was the first call on a new service every 14 days linking Port Everglades, Florida with Mariel and Santiago de Cuba.
“This new service offered by SC Line is the evident proof of the successful efforts that both Governments have been doing for the last months,” SC Line said.
Port Everglades already has shipping service to Cuba from Crowley Maritime, the Jacksonville-based line authorized since 2001 to ship food, humanitarian supplies and other approved items to the island.
