In a series of posts on Facebook and Twitter (12 to be exact), it demonstrated the critical role seaports play to the economy and tell the "big picture story" about our ports. But AAPA knows that whether it's December or July, seaports deliver products and provide services to communities across the world throughout the year. That's why it will be continuing the social media campaign during 2014. Stay tuned by following us on Facebook at seaportsdeliverprosperity and on Twitter at @AAPA_Seaports and help us tell the story about how #seaportsdelivertheholidays all year long.
