New Vessel Added to the Maritime Security Program
The M/V Liberty Passion is the third ship owned by Liberty Global Logistics to join the MSP fleet
DOT Secretary Elaine Chao welcomed the newest vessel to the Maritime Security Program (MSP), named the M/V Liberty Passion. This vessel is the third owned by Liberty Global Logistics to join the fleet.
“Today we are celebrating a public-private partnership that is strengthening America’s Merchant Marine, as well as America’s Armed Forces,” said Secretary Chao. “U.S.-flagged vessels are a critical component in our domestic commerce, moving $467 billion worth of goods between ports in the U.S. In addition to these robust economic contributions, a healthy U.S. maritime industry crewed by American merchant mariners is also a vital part of our national security at ready call to support the Armed Forces and carry military equipment and suppliers to the frontlines.”
The Liberty Passion has the ability to transport up to 6,500 cars thanks to its 165,000 square feet of deck space.
