"SeaLand, the Intra-Americas regional ocean carrier of the Maersk Group, announces a new service dedicated to trade between the Gulf of Mexico and Eastern and Central United States. The new SeaLand Atlantico service will provide weekly coverage between the ports of Veracruz and Altamira, Mexico and Philadelphia. The service features a fast 6 day transit time. From Philadelphia, Mexican shippers are able to access up to 40% of the U.S. population within only a day's drive. It is also the epicenter of some of the most robust rail networks in America. The new service will have its first sailing out of Veracruz on January 26th, 2016.
This option is especially geared for producers and exporters of perishable goods to the U.S. and provides the economies of scale, security and reliability of an ocean service combined with an expedited transit, ideal for moving goods such as avocados, lemons, tomatoes and commercial cargo."

"Trade between Mexico and Pennsylvania amounted to close to 7 billion dollars per year [in 2013.] With Philadelphia as its epicenter, this service effectively connects companies to the U.S. Central and Eastern regions offering supply chain efficiencies for importers and exporters alike. It is a desire that we have been cultivating for years and that will become a reality very soon"
