Port Philadelphia’s Packer Avenue Terminal Welcomes New APL/SeaLand Service
North-South ACX/NAE service starts at Port Philadelphia via SeaLand/APL
The Antares J arrived at Port Philadelphia’s Packer Avenue Marine Terminal (PAMT) on Tuesday, June 30, marking the maiden call of the new North-South ACX/NAE service. The new service, operated by SeaLand and APL, connects Philadelphia to Cartagena, Columbia, Manzanillo & Panama.
The NAE/ACX service is the 2nd SeaLand service to start at Port Philadelphia in the month of June. On June 10th, SeaLand added Port Philadelphia to their existing South Atlantic Express (SAE) route, giving the Port connections to Columbia, Guatemala, Honduras & Panama.
“Business at the Packer Avenue terminal continues to grow, and the addition of two weekly service calls from SeaLand/APL will increase efficiency, shorten overall transit times and provide greater opportunities to expand business in both perishable and non-perishable commerce between North and South America,” said David N. Whene, president of Greenwich Terminals, operator of the terminal.
