2012 03 20

SWISS forwarding giant Panalpina has launched four less-than-container load (LCL) services for Latin America through its in-house carrier Pantainer Express Line and connecting to important ports of Santos; Port of Veracruz, Mexico City; Port of Guayaquil, Ecuador and Port of La Guaira, Venezuela.

The new guaranteed weekly services will connect Buenaventura (Colombia) with Guayaquil (Ecuador) and Colon (Panama) as well as Santos (Brazil) with Colon and Veracruz (Mexico) with La Guaira (Venezuela). Transit time from Mexico to Venezuela is reduced by 15 days.

The new LCL services will provide weekly pickup and deliveries to Buenaventura to Guayaquil and Santos to Colon; Buenaventura to Colon and Veracruz to La Guaira. The new direct service from Veracruz to La Guaira allows for a 12-day transit time, a reduction of 15 days from the previous routing. Direct transit from Buenaventura to Colon takes four days and six days to Guayaquil. Transit time for Santos to Colon is 17 days.

The service to Panama will allow customers access to Central America and Caribbean and existing services that Panalpina operates out of Colon to Central America and the Caribbean.

"The service from Santos to Colon is a great example," said Panalpina's country manager for Panama Markus Jornot in a statement of Colon as a natural transshipment port from Panama Canal. "It connects Brazil's booming economy with Central America."
