Current Articles: (9/23) Charleston Nets New Breakbulk Service


Charleston, SC – The Port of Charleston’s growing breakbulk business has
attracted a new regular shipping service.

Liberty Global Logistics LLC, an American-flag ocean carrier specializing
in general breakbulk and roll-on/roll-off cargo, has announced regular,
monthly calls at the Port of Charleston’s Veterans Terminal. Liberty
began calling Charleston on inducement in April and has had six ships
dock at Veterans Terminal to date.

The new service makes calls across the Middle East on its regular
rotation while offering customers the flexibility to sail additional
routes based on demand. Liberty has deployed three, 6,100-car-unit
vessels on the service, which makes its next Charleston stop in mid-
October with the M/V Prestige New York.

“The Port of Charleston has proven experience and resources to handle any
type of breakbulk or rolling stock,” said Mike Chapell, director of
operations at Liberty Global Logistics. “The potential is great to grow
Liberty’s core business here.”

“The Charleston maritime community is pleased to welcome Liberty Global
Logistics’ regular monthly calls,” said Paul McClintock, senior vice
president and chief commercial officer of the SCSPA. “South Carolina
Ports is committed to growing this sector of our business, which brings
good jobs to our waterfront.”

Regular ports of call on the Liberty service include Alexandria, Egypt;
Salalah, Oman; Karachi, Pakistan; Mina Salman, Bahrain; Umm Qasr, Iraq;
Ash Shuaiba, Kuwait; Aqaba, Jordan; Mersin, Turkey; and Fujairah, United
Arab Emirates.

Shippers may contact the SCSPA’s Brad Stroble for additional information
on Charleston’s breakbulk capabilities.
