Port of Miami Prepares for Larger Sea Freight Vessels
International freight companies making plans for the arrival of bigger ships in the Port of Miami once the Panama Canal opens larger locks in the years ahead will be interested in the latest news concerning the need to find the money required for the port to dredge its harbor to 50 feet. This depth is required to allow for bigger container ships to access the Port of Miami, once current construction on the Panama Canal is completed, according to sources in the business of shipping a car overseas. The job of finding the money for the dredging of the port was becoming a problem for the people tasked with this job, but Florida Governor Rick Scott recently announced he had directed the Florida Department of Transport to cover the $7 million the Port of Miami needs to complete the dredging and ready the port for the arrival of larger containerships in the years ahead. Great news for America, the Port of Miami and the business of international trade in general around the world.

This news will certainly make ocean freight companies planning on using the Port of Miami in the years ahead to help transport cargo on time and budget to destinations around the world happy. The finding of the money for the dredging of the harbor of the Port of Miami is news that will mean they can begin making plans to make use of this news in the years ahead. At present, according to sources in the international business of transportation, the Port of Miami is only one of a number of America ports on the east coast planning on dredging harbor depths to 50 feet, or more, in order to be ready once larger containerships begin moving through an expanded Panama Canal in 2014. This news also puts the Port of Miami ahead of many of the eastern ports that want to prepare for the arrival of larger containerships in 2014 and means they might get a bit of a head start in making plans.

New Ocean Freight Service Announced
Transport firms in the roro transport industry planning on providing transport services between Halifax and the US ports of Portland Maine and Boston in the future will be interested in the latest news concerning container ship service between these destinations. American Feeder Lines recently announced plans to launch weekly container ship service between these cities in the spring that will apparently follow the route of the former Yankee Clipper feeder service that transported containers for Hapag-Lloyd.

International auto shipping firms looking at this news and thinking they could use this service to help transport vehicles to destination on time and budget might want to slow down. American Feeder Lines has also indicated that they still have a few things to work out, before they can launch this new service, but expect to launch this new transport service in the second half of 2011, if everything goes as planned.

Apparently, American Feeder Lines still has to charter a container ship to provide the service, and this could take awhile, since according to sources in the international freight shipping industry American Feeder Lines has recently been looking around for financing for this idea. According to sources American Feeder Lines still needs about $750 million in financing to make this new transport service between Halifax and the American ports in question reality, so we might want to wait and see if they can find the money they need to do the job. American Feeder Lines has indicated that it has found some customers that are interested in this new transport service and would be looking for more interest in this offer during the weeks and months ahead.
