Queen B, a 435-foot container ship operated by World Direct Shipping, is in port for one day to load 68 containers of cellulose for export to Mexico. One of World Direct Shipping’s two ships, Queen B or Falmouth, calls at the Port of Pensacola every Monday, providing local and regional shippers direct shipping service to the Mexican ports of Tampico, Tuxpan and Coatzacoalcos.


Eagle Kuantan is an 800-foot tank ship operated by Malaysia International Shipping, formerly AET Tankers. It is calling at Offshore Inland Marine’s offshore and subsea service center for 10 days for hull inspections and certifications in compliance with the American Bureau of Shipping’s requirements for periodic inspection of vessel hulls either via dry-docking or UWILD (underwater inspections in lieu of dry-docking).
