GSL’s new services will create jobs at sea, in ports, and in shipyards. Essentially, GSL will create entirely new multi faceted maritime industries along the US East, Gulf coasts and the Great Lakes.
After nearly a half-century in the shadow of rail and truck, coastal short sea vessels will re-emerge as an efficient, environmentally friendly, and civically responsible alternative to surface transportation for containerized cargos between the U.S. coastal ports.
