Ocean Network Express (ONE) has announced a new reefer container service connecting the West Coast of South America to the East Coast of North America.
Launching September 2023, the FLX service will deploy four vessels directly connecting the ports of Callao and Paita in Peru and Guayaquil in Ecuador to South Florida with “one of the fastest transit times on the market”. That includes Callao-South Florida in 11 days, Paita-South Florida in 9 days, and Guayaquil-South Florida in 8 days.
FLX also provides a direct connection from South Florida to Honduras, as well as destinations in Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Via the hub ports of Cartagena, Colombia and Callao, ONE says that its services can be “seamlessly connected with other services to/from the United States, East Coast South America, Europe, Caribbean and Asia.” Chilean exporters can also connect their cargoes via Callao.
Latin American reefer container transport volumes have grown fast over the last few years, says ONE, as the region’s fruits, vegetables and seafood have continued to gain popularity worldwide. That includes Asia, where ONE has established itself as a significant player in reefer cargo imports from South America.
