In order to analyze the feasibility of increasing fresh fruit exports through the Port of Lirquén (DP World Lirquén), ASOEX representatives held a meeting with executives from this port facility.
Iván Marambio, president of Asoex, later stated: "It was a very positive meeting, because we were able to see how we can promote a greater shipment of our fresh fruits through the port of Lirquén. The diversification of the ports of departure for our fruits is part of the strategy that we have defined as Asoex in terms of logistics, which is being worked on together with various actors in the logistics chain. Achieving increasingly efficient logistics is one of the challenges we face today as an industry and a country.”
General manager of ASOEX, Miguel Canala-Echeverría, observed: “Currently, about 108 tons of fresh fruits are shipped through the ports of the Biobío region, which, we believe, can be increased.”
