New sea link between Spanish Vigo and South America

The Guixar Terminal, managed by Termavi, in the Spanish port of Vigo, has opened a new connection to South America. Hundreds of containers full of fruit are expected. Operated by Hapag Lloyd, the line offers direct connections to the west and east coasts of South America, with weekly stops in Vigo, Malaga, Valencia, Barcelona and Italy. The route includes stops in Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Panama and Costa Rica.

The shipping company operates the following ships: Irene's Remedy, Karelia, Claudia, Zemlik Express, Emma A, Cape Citius, Mersin Express and Izmit Express. Irene's Remedy was the first vessel to load fruit and frozen fish into Waco. Wood and other materials were loaded at Waco.

In 2023, 230,039 tons of fruit were handled at the Port of Waco. This is 28.6% higher than the 178,877 tonnes in 2022. Fruit is an important product in the port of Vigo, particularly pineapples, bananas and melons, which trade prominently. Most of the fruits are imported. Brazil, Costa Rica and Colombia are the main countries of origin.

As of February this year, 39,426 tonnes of fruits have already been handled, which is 6.23% more than the same period last year. Expectations for this year are optimistic with the reactivation of connectivity to South America by shipping company CMA-CGM in 2020.
