Cargo conundrum faces Maine maritime officials

PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The sudden shuttering of a weekly container cargo service between Halifax, Nova Scotia, Portland and Boston has left businesses that used the service scrambling and maritime officials looking into other opportunities.

Late last week, American Feeder Lines announced it would no longer be running its weekly container service between the three ports.  The company cited low container volumes and a loss of  private investment as the reasons for the move.

"The biggest impact is on the shippers that were using the service," stated John Henshaw, executive director of the Maine Port Authority. "Obviously they were only using the service if it was in their interest to do so.  They were either saving time or saving money and so those shippers will have to find other routes to market or to receive their imported goods in Maine."
