SCF ANNOUNCES DOMESTIC SHORT-SEA CONTAINER ON BARGE RATES
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Nov. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SCF Marine Inc. (“SCF”), a subsidiary of SEACOR Holdings Inc. (NYSE:CKH) today announced rates for its container on barge logistics service. Operated by SEACOR AMH (“AMH”), the service provides customers with containerized cargo movements of imports and exports through New Orleans, Louisiana and Mobile, Alabama.
“Waterborne container cargo provides shippers with one of the safest and most fuel efficient forms of transportation today. It reduces roadway damage, highway congestion, bottlenecks at port gate structures, and daytime traffic at terminals,” said Tim Power, president and chief executive officer of SCF.”
Rich Teubner, vice president of AMH further stated, “relative to over-the-road shipping, movement by barge also provides customers with competitive pricing, a scalable modular shipping solution, and improves their “green” footprint by utilizing a more fuel efficient logistics solution.”
AMH barges have a capacity of 72 loaded, or 96 empty, twenty-foot equivalent units (“TEUs”). Last year, AMH moved a total of approximately 50,000 TEUs, an increase in excess of 40% over the prior year. With rising customer demand and mounting concerns over environmental pollution, AMH anticipates continued growth in the sector.
