TMM Lines upgrades service between Canada, US, Mexico and South America

by Canadian Shipper

TMM Lines is upgrading the service it operates along the west coast of the Americas to a fixed day weekly link from May 5.

The west coast link operates as part of the new Asia-Americas Service, and runs from Vancouver, Canada via Los Angeles and Mexico as far as Lirquen in Chile.

“For many ports, we offer the only fixed day weekly service on this West Coast Americas route,” say Doug Wray, VP Sales North America. “We expect many more customers to use this upgraded service to ship their goods between Canada, US and Central/South America.”

TMM Lines will add Seattle as a southbound seasonal call, mostly for the fruit trade – to carry apples from the state of Washington to Central and South America.

The service also offers a direct link between Mexican and South American ports and Asia.

“We are one of the few lines offering a weekly trans-Pacific service to many of these ports on the West Coast of South America,” Wray adds. “And we are the only service offering a direct link between the rapidly expanding port of Yantian in China and ports in Mexico, Central and South America.”
