The new direct service to Shanghai will be given with a ship that comes from Houston, arrives at the Moin Contendores Terminal and from there departs to China. This direct route will reduce transit time from 34 to 40 days to 22 to 23 days."

Alfredo Volio, vice-president of the National Chamber of Pineapple Producers and Exporters (Canapep), said that "... after serious transport problems to send this fruit to China, in November last year the producers and the head of Comex, Dyalá Jiménez, traveled to that country and raised the problems to China Ocean Shipping Company (Cosco)."

Volio added that after multiple negotiations with representatives of China, which lasted for about a year, the maritime service to be repeated every 22 days was enabled.

Better Logistics for Trade with Asia

January 2016

The arrival of the first ships with capacity of 13 TEUs at the Panamanian port of Balboa is evidence of how shipping services are changing, a prelude to the opening of the expanded Canal.

Trips taken by cargo bound for East Asia with two major shipping companies in the world, Maersk Line and MSC, will be shorter, thanks to the port at Balboa now being able to manage ships carrying over 13,000 TEUs's, a capacity which is close to the amount carried by ships which will pass through the expanded Canal.
