Give me Liberty

Liberty Maritime Corp is a New York based shipping company that actually runs some US flagged ships. It has a current fleet of nine vessel - 6 bulkers and 3 PCTCs (Pure Car and Truck Carriers.) The company specializes in government and food aid cargoes, including military.

Liberty Pride made a brief visit to Autoport this morning. Built in 2009 by Daewoo the ship is a 6100 auto capacity PCTC and is registered in New York. Since it was not built in the US it cannot operate under the Jones Act (between US ports) but must receive preferential treatment for US cargoes bound overseas. It measures 57,030 gross tons.
