Puerto Coquimbo restarted Chilean citrus exports after 4 years

After having stopped exporting citrus fruits in 2018, the Puerto Coquimbo Terminal (TPC) has resumed exporting these fruits, benefitting producers in that region in northern Chile, which concentrates 35% of the country's total citrus exports.

Two ships, the Crown Topaz and Crown Sapphire, have already departed from the port with local products. TPC reported that it shipped 1,200 pallets of fruit produced in and around the area and, a week ago, it loaded another 1,400 pallets that were shipped directly to the United States.

"Exporting fruit through Coquimbo allows producers in the area to save on shipping costs because they do not have to transport their fruit to the central area," said the general manager of TPC, Juan Ignacio Donoso.
