New Maritime Route Nicaragua - USA

The Mexican company Transportes Marítimos Lamol will start operating the US - Nicaragua route, passing through the Escondido River to get to the Port of Arlen Siu, in the south-central part of the country.

Friday, May 29, 2015

The new route for TML Liners will be used by ships carrying 80 containers with a capacity of 3000 tons of cargo, which will set sail from Nicaragua to the United States, making a stop in Panama.

According to Denis Hurtado, official at the National Port Company (EPN), "... 'The new circuit will energize shipping trade in the area, (because) some of the cargo from neighboring countries will be able to move through the port Arlen Siu, lowering import and export costs.'"

Alberto Navarro, representative of TML Liners, told Elnuevodiario.com that "... 'Everyone in the Miami market has asked us to operate in Nicaragua because we have a boat able to navigate the Escondido River, this country has great potential and seeing how other Mexican companies such as SuKarne, Lala and Aero Mexico have come here, it has motivated us to join in this development.
