Passengers Transport
The SRVF is a specially designed vessel to carry passengers and their personal cargo for inter-island transportation. Special considerations have been made for safety. The vessel if rolled over in storm conditions will self-right to the normal up-right position. It has been made watertight in any position as well as having air chambers for damage flotation. The vessel will also serve for emergency evacuations as well as rescue work. An amphibious model has also been developed for hard to reach areas. It can also be modified for small package and/or Air Container fast delivery between the islands.

Benefits
The Caribbean Express Fleet will be a dedicated Caribbean cargo hauler with established and regularly scheduled routes.

Caribbean Express, Ltd. will work with shippers to establish a reliable infrastructure for onsite support (moving cargo from dock to customer warehouse) if necessary. Real-time information will be available from Caribbean Express Fleet as well as the inter-island transports to the main office at all times.

Key Hub Ports
Caribbean Express will establish Automated and Computerized Consolidation Key Hub Ports throughout the Caribbean for the purpose of container and freight movement between the large long-hull vessels and inter-island transports. The facility has been specially designed to speed movement of containers with computer tracking; this arrangement will allow faster customs inspections.
