This allows Lykes Lines to offer new calls at the ports of Baltimore, Jacksonville, Freeport (Bahamas), Fortaleza and Salvador on this service. Transit times have been significantly reduced, including Miami to Santos cut from 14 days to 10 days and Rio de Janeiro to New York cut from 15 days to 11 days.
