SeaLand was launched on January 1, 2015 to service the growing Americas trade region. Several major factors played into the timing of SeaLand entering this region including: the Panama Canal expansion, near-sourcing and demand for year round produce. Refrigerated transportation is a particular strength of the ocean carrier. “I am delighted to commemorate the opening of our new SeaLand headquarters with a celebratory ribbon cutting event. Florida is an important trade hub for the Americas so is the ideal location for the base of our operations. We’re committed to developing meaningful industry relationships in the local communities where we work. Connecting the Americas, the people and region, is important to us. Together, with all of our partners, we’ll help grow the marketplace. We all go together, “Vamos Juntos,” said Craig Mygatt, CEO of SeaLand.

January 1, 2015, SeaLand commenced operations offering right-sized shipping solutions delivered through personally connected representatives, helpful technology and expertise that give customers an advantage throughout the region.

Born of the Americas, for the Americas, SeaLand is absolutely committed to its customers. That’s what drives SeaLand to build connections that unleash the potential of the Americas. Shippers in the Americas come in all shapes and sizes, but they all need a partner who believes every box matters and who does business the way they do business—passionately and personally.

With SeaLand, empowered individuals work tirelessly to get to know their customers’ business and help them on the spot. Shippers also leverage the power of SeaLand’s strategic hub locations, ability to convert over the road and network of established relationships.
