Moore-McCormack today is one of the most respected names in the American
Merchant Marine. Its house flag is flown aboard 14 modern cargo liners
serving routes to Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay, the
Republic of South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, landlocked
neighboring states, and the Malagasy Republic. Mooremack has served
the East Coast of South America since 1913 through its American Republics
Line service. The Company expanded its operations in 1957 to include
the African trade with the purchase of the prestigious Robin Line.
The accumulated experience of more than six decades is the basis of the
Moore-McCormack reputation for expertise and reliability.
Mooremack introduced vessel engine room automation to the American
Merchant Marine with the record breaking Constellation class ships--the
fastest commercial cargo vessels ever designed and built at the time of
Mooremack was the first carrier to combine roll-on/roll-off capability
and cellular container capacity in one vessel. It pioneered the
Mooremack system for the use of specially designed cargo slings which offer
more efficient, unitized handling of traditionally break bulk bagged
commodities, such as green coffee, cocoa beans, wax and casein.
Together with the national flag lines of countries on its trade routes,
Mooremack is continuously engaged in efforts to expand and improve marine
transport and related port and internal transit services to meet the needs
