New El Salvador - Asia Maritime Route

The company Oceánica Internacional has started operating a new maritime cargo service that will connect the port of Hong Kong with El Salvador without the need for transshipments.

Friday, December 8, 2017

The goal of the new route is to expand the options for transporting maritime cargo between the region and Asia, benefiting in particular Central American companies that import goods from China.

Francisco Cordero, president of the International Oceanic Corporation, explained to Elmundo.sv that "... the company will be able to consolidate cargoes in the port of Hong Kong from 35 cities in Asia and the boats will sail every week to El Salvador.

"... This route can be used in two modes: Full Container Load (FCL), mobilizing the entire cargo of a single company; and Less Than a Container Load (LCL), transporting several small packages from different companies.".
