APL have announced the launch of their new Andino Service (ANS). This new weekly regional service will help link key markets in Latin America. Via APL global linehaul services at the transshipment hubs of Manzanillo, Cartagena, Buenaventura and Balboa, the new ANS service will enhance connectivity between West Coast South America and major ports in Asia and the United States.

“We are optimising our Latin America service network with the launch of the ANS service, to facilitate West Coast South America’s growing trade with Asia and the US. Through connecting APL services in Panama and Colombia, the ANS service will offer shippers competitive transit times between West Coast South America and major US West Coast and East Coast ports, as well as improved access to key markets in Asia,” said Efrain Osorio, APL Head of Latin America Trade.

The West Coast of South America is a dominant exporter of fresh produce, including seafood, fruits, and vegetables. To power these exporters’ business growth, the ANS Northbound service will provide priority handling that expedites shipment of these perishable reefer commodities.

The ANS service will call the ports of San Antonio, Callao, Guayaquil, Buenaventura, Manzanillo, Kingston, Cartagena and Balboa.
