Will sea freight be an alternative to Latin American air freight?

Trade imbalance and capacity issues play a mayor role in Latin American logistics. The flower trade finds it particularly hard to deal with these recent capacity problems. According to Christine Boldt, executive vice president of the Association of Floral Importers of Florida, they consider switching to sea freight. 

"Now we are looking at sea freight, which we have never considered before. There has to be some relief – either find a southbound option to get lift, or shift to the sea", she explains. "But a shift to sea will change the entire way we do business. So if anyone has southbound cargo by air, we are in.”
