Saint Lucia stands to benefit from the launch of a new fast cargo vessel that will serve the Caribbean ‘in record time’.
Launched on May 31, the Capo Rosso V will be able to reach Martinique and Saint Lucia in just 1h 15 minutes, media reports say.
According to Martinique.France.Antilles, the Capo Rosso V is now operational in the new marina at Le Marin in the South of Martinique.
Among other things, the cargo vessel has the capacity to transport 10 tonnes of goods with 3.6 cubic metres of freight on deck.
It is the latest acquisition of the Transports Express Caraibes company.
Company Director Patrice Amanou and his business partner Gilles Marchand, were quoted as saying that the aim of the new vessel is to promote the transport of goods and passengers between Martinique and the Caribbean.
