A pilot freight service that allows ships to dock in ports in the United States has become a popular option for cargo-carrying ships that have struggled to find a place to berth.
The new service called the Vessel-to-Port (VTP) is a new way to ship ships from ports like Port Canaveral in Florida to ports like Charleston, South Carolina, without having to travel through New York City, San Francisco or Boston.
It can be booked online, or by calling the company that runs it at 1-800-DOCK-LIVE, or 888-DECK-LIFE.
Pilot freight service provider Vessel-TO-Port says its service is a way to offer cargo to ships that are out of place at a port where the prevailing winds are too strong.
Vessel-TAB has similar services in place for ships at sea in New York, Boston and Miami.
In the U, ships are generally not allowed to dock with ships from foreign ports, because the foreign port is in the middle of the U., said Peter R. DeAngelis, a port official with the Maritime Administration in New Orleans.
“We are trying to work with foreign port authorities and foreign ports to make sure that our cargo does not have to pass through those ports in order to get to the ship in the Gulf of Mexico,” he said.
“We’ve had success in this, but the challenge is there are no foreign ports for the ships to go through, so there are very few foreign ports that can accommodate these vessels.”
The company has also been successful in shipping cargo from ships to New York and Boston, but DeAngelas said it has struggled with finding a place for its cargo.
Vessel-TOP offers a service for shipping from port to port, but not all ports in New England accept the service.
The company also offers a similar service from New York to Boston, and ships from New Jersey to Miami.
Vessels that dock at Port Canaveral can then go to New Jersey, where the company is based, to pick up their cargo, and then to South Carolina.
Vessel-Pilot said it would open a second pilot service at Port Lauderdale, Florida, in March 2019.
New York’s port of Long Island is the first port in the continental U.s. to accept Vessel-LTP, and the first in the world to offer the service, Vessel-LABS said.
The service, which has been around for about a year, offers a low cost and low risk.
Shipping containers are allowed to be packed in the back of the vessel, rather than being shipped in a cargo container, the company said.
The container is then transported to a shipyard or shipbuilding site where the ship is assembled.
Vessel owners must pay a small fee to the company, and are expected to provide a letter from a licensed truck driver.
The ship is then loaded onto a ship towing platform and driven to a port in another state.
Customers will then be able to pick their container up and dock it in the port they choose.
Vessel customers can dock their container anywhere in the New York state, Connecticut, New Jersey or New York harbor, and they can dock anywhere in South Carolina and Florida, as well as in the Virgin Islands and Guam, the Vessels said.
For those that prefer to dock at the port where they plan to dock, Vessels offers a number of options.
For example, if the ship’s captain chooses the Port Canaveral, it will dock at St. Thomas International Airport, where it can be picked up and loaded onto the flight line for the next voyage, the website said.
If the container is a larger cargo, it can then be unloaded and transported to the Port of Miami, where crews will then load the container onto a shipping container that will be loaded onto another ship for the final voyage.
For those ships that prefer a shorter trip to port in Florida, Vessel offers a different service.
A vessel can dock at a Port Canaveral port for up to three days and be unloaded in the St. Augustine-St. Augustine International Airport dockyard for up, four days, the site said.
For those who prefer to ship to another port, Vessel will provide a ship builder with a list of port facilities, the service said.
That list will then then be shared with the port, which will then decide whether to accept the vessel.
If it does, the vessel can then dock there.
If not, the ship can then take a trip to the port of the next port in line, according to the Vessel website.
As for how many people are taking advantage of the new service, there’s no firm number, but it’s expected to grow, Vessel said.
In fact, the number of people taking advantage has grown by about 30 percent over the past year, said Vessel’s DeAngeles.
