PUERTO RICO SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Horizon Lines to Expand Gulf Service
Horizon Lines will add a Jacksonville call to its southbound service between Houston and San Juan, which will continue to operate on a 14-day roundtrip timetable.
Starting June 7, 2013
, our new Gulf Atlantic Express service schedule will be:
|Houston, TX (HOU)
||Jacksonville, FL (JAX)
| Jacksonville, FL (JAX)
||San Juan, PR (SJU)
|San Juan, PR (SJU)
||Houston, TX (HOU)
The every other Tuesday sailings from JAX to SJU provides an express service to meet our customers’ early week shipping needs, plus HazMat and a variety of equipment & service delivery options.
This schedule enhancement will offer shippers a Tuesday sailing every other week from Jacksonville to San Juan. Adding the Jacksonville call also creates a high-speed, over-the-weekend marine option through Houston for cargo bound for southeastern destinations along the Eastern Seaboard. The company’s weekly Thursday service departing Jacksonville for Puerto Rico remains unchanged.
- This bi-weekly service from Houston to Jacksonville eliminates close to 900 one-way trucking miles, offering advantages such as the greenest, most economical alternative, and a more versatile, faster option from the Gulf to the Southeast with over-the-weekend transit. Weight advantages for loads going from HOU to JAX mean you can optimize your supply chain by moving more cargo per container. HazMat and a variety of equipment & service delivery options are available. Connecting services via intermodal network will be offered to the areas of Miami and Orlando, FL; Savannah and Atlanta, GA; Charlotte, NC; Charleston, SC, among others. This innovative service will be offered every other week, starting June 7.
- The northbound Gulf service remains intact with its direct service from SJU to HOU every 14 days, departing San Juan on Fridays, arriving Houston the next Friday.
Transit times in this service will continue to be 6.5 days.
With this new service YOU choose if you need to ship from HOU to JAX only, from JAX to SJU only, all the way from HOU to SJU or from SJU to HOU.
It is very simple and so convenient.
