Shipco offers NY-to-Rio de Janeiro/Itajai LCL services

   Non-vessel-operating common carrier Shipco Transport has started direct less-than containerload services from New York to Rio de Janeiro and Itajai (Navegantes), Brazil, with its WorldWide Alliance partner Allink Transportes Internacionais.
   The NVO said the new services will “significantly improve transit times from U.S. North East, Midwest and Pacific Northwest origins feeding into the direct services from New York.” The biggest transit time gain will be from New York to Rio de Janeiro, saving seven days and for Itajai saving five days versus the traditional route via load port Miami.
   “These new services represent the next step in the natural expansion of our already extensive service package from U.S.A. to Brazil. With the recently launched Miami to Manaus, Houston to Rio De Janeiro and the two new services from New York, Shipco is on a continued path of growth in direct service offerings to the freight forwarding community,” said Niels Nielsen, vice president for the NVO’s U.S. LCL exports, in a statement.
   The New York-to-Itajai/Rio de Janeiro services are Shipco’s 11th and 12th launched this year, for a total of 253 direct LCL export services.
Shipco is a subsidiary of Scan-Group, an international shipping and transportation company based in Copenhagen and has more than 2,700 employees in own offices worldwide.
