SeaLand Begins Service at the Port of Philadelphia

SAE Service Gives Philadelphia New Connections to Columbia, Guatemala, Honduras & Panama

The 564-foot Maersk Wakamayama docked at Philadelphia Regional Port Authority’s Packer Avenue Marine Terminal (PAMT) Wednesday morning for the first call by SeaLand’s South Atlantic Express Service (SAE). The new service gives the Port new connections to Columbia, Guatemala, Honduras & Panama. SeaLand’s SAE Service is the 1st of two new services arriving at the Port of Philadelphia this month. Another weekly service – provided jointly by SeaLand and APL – is set to call the port’s Packer Avenue Marine Terminal starting late June. The vessel-sharing agreement between APL and SeaLand is subject to regulatory approval. “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.*
