Port Everglades will be added as a port of call commencing with the October 28 voyage of the Maersk Winnipeg.
"This new service will enable importers and exporters to reduce transit days and provide mid-week cargo alternatives, thereby efficiently supporting foreign trade between North and Central America," CEO of FIT, Klaus Stadthagen, was quoted as saying.
The service will also offer inland transfers from and to Nicaragua and El Salvador, according to SAAM.
