Centauri Transport out of Miami, Florida has just added several Abaco Cays to their port of calls. Sunday September 27th, 2020 was Centauri's inaugural voyage into Elbow Cay.
Centauri Transport is a new ocean shipping company servicing various family islands in the Bahamas. They currently are servicing Green Turtle, Hope Town, Marsh Harbour, and Great Guana Cay every Thursday of each week. (Weather Dependent)
Centauri is an Ocean Shipping & Logistics Company based on the Miami River with a private 3.5 acre shipping terminal with 24/7 security, two (2) warehouses, 600 feet of dock space, reefer storage for chilled and frozen cargo.
Enthused over the idea of a international shipping company direct into Hope Town, we decided to give them a try. We were extremely impressed with their customer service, communication and handling of our goods. They had continuous communication throughout the process and gave several updates on the estimated arrival of our shipment, which was altered due to bad weather.
Sunday evening, Centauri Transport vessel Costa V enters White Sound harbour for her first time. She ships to Abaco weekly and can deliver freight into White Sound Depot every Thursday (weather depending).
The ship is an impressive seaworthy vessel. Costa V is a "190’ Landing Craft with approximately 26-28 TEU capacity capable of landing in the shallow Bahamian waters around many of the ports in the Family Islands."
Upon arrival, her crew were extremely helpful and cautious with our heavy bulky shipments. They have a truck and lift aboard to help move the items. All we needed to do was arrive with a truck (Cameron Sweeting Trucking) and they assisted in loading it up. Looking at our items, we were instantly impressed as not a single imperfection on our heavy items.
The direct shipping from Florida to the cays will be a welcomed service with the magnitude of import shipping needed since Dorian. The convenience, time frame of receiving goods, and the quality and care given to your shipped items will be a great addition to our islands.
Highly recommend you start ordering with Centauri Transport for all your USA orders. They work alongside JCI Customs Brokers, but you can also use your own brokerage as well.
