Our Newark Terminal continues to be tight and at near capacity. Based on the delivery daily average, we are forced to close the Terminal starting tomorrow, Wednesday June 27th to July 3rd.

As mentioned in prior communications, our schedule was improved and we are calling Baltimore and Newark 4 times in the month of July, but until then, we continue to deal with capacity issues.

Please push cargo to our Philadelphia Auto Terminal.

In addition to the Philadelphia Terminal, Boston is another option. Please hang in there with us and we promise to get back on track and load all cleared cargo in the month of July, please see our updated RORO Schedule - .

We have added tonnage to support your deliveries to all Terminals especially Baltimore, Newark and Boston.  Please note that Sallaum Lines Sebring Express has been added to our July lineup and it’s calling Boston first, then Newark and Baltimore making the frequency between the Captain, Express and Aurora nearly a weekly call to Baltimore and Newark.
