BBC Chartering enhances South American frequency

November 13 - BBC Chartering is adding shipping capacity to its Andino Express Line, a liner service that was launched in 2005 connecting Houston with the West Coast of South America.

The service has seen good support from the energy and mining industry since its launch and this ongoing popularity has necessitated the addition of more multi-purpose / heavy lift tonnage.

From December, the service will move to a monthly schedule.

Jamilette De La Paz,
BBC Chartering's vp for liner services from Houston, from where the service is managed, says, "The Andino Express Line is scheduled to call Veracruz (Mexico) and Paita (Peru) once a month, with weekly calls at Esmeraldas or Guayaquil (Ecuador), Callao (Peru), Arica, Puerto Angamos / Antofagasta and Valpariso (Chile).

Svend Andersen, ceo of BBC Chartering remarks, "We are pleased to improve market opportunities along the Andino Express Line as it is our mission to innovate services where they can add value for our clients."
