PHOTO CUTLINE: Port Freeport’s gantry crane works the first vessel for Mediterranean Shipping Company on Thursday.
“This is a very exciting time for the Port,” said Port Freeport Executive Port Director/CEO Glenn Carlson. “We are expecting a sizeable increase in volumes from all of the petrochemical companies in the Freeport region. These companies will benefit from reduced inland expense by utilizing Port Freeport and will be able to further reduce these logistical costs by utilizing the “Heavy Lift” corridor,” explained Carlson.
The “Banana Express” will initially deploy five 2,500 TEU vessels servicing the Caribbean market and provide access to new markets via MSC’s global market.
Port Freeport is committed to keeping the local community informed of our operations and results. If you have questions or comments about this article, please email or call Glenn Carlson, Executive Port Director/CEO at email@example.com or 979-233-2667.
