TecPlata, operator of the container terminal located in Puerto La Plata, has signed a contract with Evergreen Marine Corp Taiwan Ltd. for the launch of a new service to Asia and the Far East.
Evergreen will carry out this new service in collaboration with LogIn, connecting with the largest ports in China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, India and others in Southeast Asia.
"With this agreement with the Taiwanese shipping line, TecPlata takes a further step in its consolidation as an alternative port in Buenos Aires for Argentine companies seeking competitive options for their exports and imports while taking advantage of TecPlata’s high quality service and modern facilities," ICTSI said in a statement.
TecPlata, which began operations with the Brazilian shipping line LogIn last April 2019, will enhance with Evergreen the offer of services for Argentine foreign trade operators, who will now have the possibility to quote directly a shipment to Asia and the Far East from and to La Plata.
In October 2008, TecPlata S.A. was granted a 30-year concession to build and operate an all-purpose port terminal in the greater Buenos Aires area in Argentina by the Consorcio de Gestion del Puerto La Plata.
TecPlata is Argentina’s most modern container terminal with an initial capacity of 450,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) capacity, and capable of being extended of up to 1 million TEUs in the second phase.
