LATAM Cargo is installing a new freight route that will strengthen connectivity between the United States of America (USA) and South America, reducing transportation time and providing greater capacity to its customers.
This new route started to operate with two weekly frequencies in sections from Quito (Ecuador) – Los Angeles (USA) – Houston (USA) – Manaus (Brazil) – Viracopos, Sao Paulo (Brazil). This number is expected to increase to four flights a week in the second semester with the arrival of new cargo planes announced as part of the growth plan.
“At LATAM Cargos we are constantly reviewing our loaded itinerary to look for new attractive opportunities for our customers. In this case the installation of this route corresponds to an initiative that allows us to offer more and be more options present in the most relevant market”, Gudny Genskowsky, Network Director at LATAM Cargo .
With a focus on supporting the flower business, this route will favor the transportation of flowers from Ecuador, varying the export destinations of this product, adding Los Angeles (LAX) as a new delivery point, to those that are Miami and Amsterdam.
In addition to Los Angeles, LATAM Cargo has added Houston to its network, which allows its customers to significantly reduce shipping times from the west coast and southern part of the United States to South America, for the transportation of industrial and electronic equipment, machinery and equipment; engines, auto parts, among others.
As a complement to this operation, LATAM Cargo has confirmed interline agreements to take advantage of the connectivity that Los Angeles Airport has in key markets in Asia. For this reason, the integration of this new route, which will connect the South American States with America, is a reflection of the commitment of LATAM Cargo to adapt to the needs of its customers, using the flexibility of the network to offer personalized solutions.
