ICTSI Argentina unit starts receiving imports from Far East


    TecPlata port terminal has begun receiving imports from the Far East with the first shipment from China through a new Far East service provided by Evergreen Marine Corporation.

    TecPlata, Argentina’s most modern container terminal, is a subsidiary of Philippine-based port operator International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI)

    The import was carried by the company Di Gilio Hnos de Ensenada which comprised auto parts from Ningbo, China.

    First import from China uses new Evergreen service.

    In turn, on the same ship and on the same service, TecPlata’s first export for China were loaded. The exports were refrigerated containers from Frigorífico Gorina, a leading company in the export of meat in Argentina from La Plata. Part of the reefer cargo is destined for the port of Shanghai, and the rest goes to the port of Xingang.

    The new Evergreen service broadens the range of options for cargo traffic from / to the Far East which, added to operational advantages and lower terminal costs, positions TecPlata as one of the best port alternatives for Argentine foreign trade.

    TecPlata continues to strengthen this position by adding new services. Recently, the terminal received import cargo from Brazil that was later transported to the La Plata Free Trade Zone, located just 5 km from the terminal. Because of this, TecPlata seeks to develop and promote a logistics hub in the region, adding synergies with the La Plata Free Trade Zone, with the aim of reducing costs of Argentine logistics.
