CSAV adds Savannah to U.S. East Coast/East Coast South America loop
Compania Sudamericana de Vapores (CSAV) has added calls at the port of Savannah to its weekly U.S. East Coast/North Coast South America/East Coast South America/Caribbean/U.S. East Coast USATLAN Service.
The 2,546-TEU vessel “Libra Salvador” made the first call on the USATLAN service at Savannah Tuesday.
The USATLAN Service uses six ships of about 2,500 TEUs and has a revised port rotation of New York, Norfolk, Baltimore, Savannah, Miami, Puerto Cabello, Buenos Aires, Sao Francisco do Sul, Paranagua, Santos, Puerto Cabello, Kingston, and back to New York.
The USATLAN Service will offer a 16-day transit from Savannah to Buenos Aires and 21-day transit from Rio de Janeiro to Savannah.
U.S. cargoes CSAV anticipates handling via Savannah include woodpulp, paper products, linerboard and resins, while anticipated inbound cargoes include furniture, wood and other consumer products, said the Georgia Ports Authority, operator of the port of Savannah.
Last month, Turkon Line added Savannah to its Mediterranean/U.S. East Coast USA Line service.
