Tropical Shipping is adding more vessels to the Port of Palm Beach. Four were in port last Friday. They reported on their website:
“Tropical Shipping is committed to the Caribbean market and its changing needs. We have invested $150 million in six new vessels that are custom-built to better serve the region.
We are excited to welcome the remainder of the new vessels into service this year. The Tropic Island, the second of the four new 1100 TEU ships, is currently enroute to the Port of Palm Beach. She, along with the Tropic Gem, are expected to begin service in February. The Tropic Jewel and the Tropic Lissette are will be arriving this summer.
The vessels are faster, bigger, safer and eco-friendly for improved service. The four Carib Class ships are similar to our Tropic Carib and Tropic Unity while the two Mini Express Class vessels are similar to the Tropic Express. All of the vessels include the latest technology and equipment, making them safer and more reliable.”
