Wan Hai Lines has adjusted its Asia-South America (ASA) service to include a call at Paitas port, Peru. The Taiwanese liner operator is allocating more reefers to the ASA service to meet strong customer demand.
A Wan Hai spokesperson stated that the transportation time has been significantly reduced, by nine days. The carrier said that there is particularly strong demand in Asia for South American grapes, cherries and blueberries.
ASA will be served by the newly built 3,055TEU Wan Hai 322, which was delivered by Japan Marine United Corporation in October 2020. The service loop is Kaohsiung, Shekou, Hong Kong, Ningbo, Shanghai, Manzanillo, Lazaro Cardenas, Puerto Quetzal, Callao, Guayaquil, Paitas and back to Kaohsiung.
