The Puerto Bolivar Maritime Terminal has kept all its operations active since the start of the coronavirus outbreak and logistics has not been interrupted despite the declaration of the health emergency in Ecuador.
1,982,426 boxes of bananas were exported from this terminal on week 16 (April 13 to the 19), as Yilport substantially improved the loading and unloading capacity of container ships.
The Port Authority highlighted that "the port's daily work continues thanks to a great human team that strives each day to continue providing an efficient quality service to the banana exporting sector."
The National Emergency Operations Committee (COE-N) will approve a proposal for logistics corridors on the main routes that connect Ecuador in order to guarantee the supply of products to this city and to the country in general. The goal is to take care of the safety of cargo carriers. The corridors will have disinfectants, help, and food supply points.
