M-10 MARINE HIGHWAY
In January 2021, National Shipping of America expanded its services by expanding the Isla Verde Express service (IVE) by adding a fortnightly call at Port Everglades, Florida. The expansion connects the U.S. mainland to Puerto Rico with the industry’s fastest transit, and creates an American Marine Highway from Texas to South Florida coined as the M-10.
The new service offers an alternative method to move domestic truck loads from South Texas to and South Florida, relieving road and rail congestion and provides customers with a cleaner, greener alternative when moving cargo between major markets situated more than 1,200 miles apart; five times fewer carbon dioxide emissions using water versus truck transport.
