Atlantic Ro-Ro Carriers launched a general cargo service between the Port of Tampa and the Port of St. Petersburg.

The service kicked off this week with a call at Tampa by the Baltic Mercur, which was loaded at the Ports America terminal with containers, heavy equipment work vehicles and freight trucks.

The new monthly service uses a fleet of multi-purpose vessels that can carry a variety of general cargoes such as steel, containers, roll-on/roll-off traffic, project cargoes and bulk commodities. Transit time is 18 days, according to a company statement.
