Swiss-based forwarding and logistics services company, Panalpina recently announced the opening of their new Less than Container Load (LCL) Ocean Freight hub in Cartagena, Colombia. The new hub will connect services in Europe, Asia and Latin America with Central America and the Caribbean and will be wholly managed by Panalpina. Customers will significantly benefit from the new hub as it promises over 30 new LCL services, reduced transit times and a wider reach.

Panalpina Global Head of Ocean Freight LCL, Clas Thorell explains, “According to global economic projections, growth is expected to reach 1.7 per cent in 2018 and 2.3 per cent in 2019 in Latin America and the Caribbean.”

Mr. Thorell further added, “We want to be part of the future of this emerging market by offering financially viable solutions to customers who source or distribute in these markets.”

The Pantainer Express Line will offer 20 inbound connections and 18 outbound connections, enabling smaller shipments to move by sea with consistent and regular departures.

CEO of Panalpina, Stefan Karlen said, “This is a long-term investment in the global supply chain that we believe will be beneficial for our customers and Panalpina, today and well into the future. Now, our Colombia hub reduces transhipment time and allows faster access to markets. The future opportunities it opens up are real possibilities for our customers to pursue investments in the region and that is what we are looking to achieve – solutions that foster growth for Panalpina, our customers and the communities where we operate.”
