NATIONAL SHIPPING OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES NEW SOUTH FLORIDA TO SAN JUAN SERVICE
National Shipping of America (NSA) is excited to announce the maiden voyage of a new direct service between South Florida and San Juan. On January 10, 2021, the National Glory will add Port Everglades (PEV) on the southbound call to San Juan. This opens a new option for customers with goods moving from South Florida destined to Puerto Rico.
This new fortnightly service allows for a late gate delivery Friday night at PEV and arrival in San Juan on Wednesday morning – as per our existing schedule.
“ Customers moving high value goods and perishable products will find this new service of interest with a late close Friday evening in Port Everglades and arriving Wednesday morning in San Juan; just in time for weekend shelf stocking,“ as quoted by Torey Presti, President of National Shipping of America.
National Shipping of America is now in the 8th year of serving Puerto Rico. Since 2013 the National Glory has been serving Houston, Texas with a direct service to San Juan.
Prior to entering the Puerto Rico trade in 2013, the National Glory was supporting our troops in the Middle East.
National Shipping specializes in niche markets providing customers added value particularly on their cargoes west of the Mississippi. NSA offers a full array of ISO containers both dry and reefer. Customers have enjoyed the personalized service that only a small carrier can provide.
“National Shipping of America’s announcement to add a port call in Port Everglades is excellent news for the Puerto Rico food Industry,” said Manuel Reyes, Executive Vice President of MIDA. He added, “This new direct call in South Florida offers the market another service option and the fastest direct service available to San Juan.”
“We look forward to welcoming you onboard in the New Year,” said Roberto Lugo Jr, VP & GM – Puerto Rico of National Shipping of America. Roberto added, “The service also closes the loop connecting Florida to our Texas service – two key markets for the trade with Puerto Rico. Covering niche ports in South Texas and South Florida offers our Puerto Rico customers more value in managing their stateside inland costs.”
