PIL launches WS6 Service between Far East and South America


Pacific International Lines (PIL) is pleased to introduce a new weekly direct service linking China and Korea with four key countries in South America – Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia and Chile. The new service, known as West Coast South America 6 (WS6), will commence on 13 July 2022 from Ningbo, China.

WS6 aims to augment PIL’s existing two services, WS2 and WSA, strengthening PIL’s connectivity into Colombia and Chile. A consortium of ten vessels will serve it with an average effective capacity of about 3,300 TEUs, jointly deployed by PIL, Wan Hai Lines and Yang Ming Lines.

Mr Tonnie Lim, Chief Trade Officer, PIL, said, “We are launching this new WS6 service to broaden PIL’s presence in West Coast South America and capitalise on the growth potential of the Latin American region. This is also part of PIL’s efforts to meet the needs of its customers worldwide for more comprehensive coverage in Central and South America.”

The ports of call for this WS6 service are:

Ningbo – Shanghai – Qingdao – Pusan – Manzanillo – Lazaro Cardenas – Puerto Quetzal – Buenaventura – Valparaiso – Ningbo
