More than 2,500 containers with cherries shipped in the Port of San Antonio have already left for China

"After a few complex days in land and port logistics, the first ships of the cherry shipment season, which were loaded with more than 2,500 containers of cherries, have finally left for China from the Port of San Antonio."

A total of five container ships have already sailed from the Port of San Antonio: the Seaspan Oceania ship, which left for Hong Kong, followed by the Ho Chi Minh City, Caroline Maersk, and the Ever Loyal ships. The port also announced the arrival of the Maersk Shams and YM Utility ships.

"We have already resumed operations for the transfer of fruit shipments, which are so important for the country, especially the cherries. We have coordinated various actions in such a way that the concessionaire can carry out its operation in a normal way after the complicated beginning we had due to the carriers' strike," stated Luis Knaak, the general manager of the Port of San Antonio.

"Collaboration and dialogue are very valuable for the success of the logistics chain. We have worked hard with our concessionaires and port workers to, once again, stabilize logistics. The challenge of the port complex and the logistics chain in San Antonio was to normalize the delivery of fresh fruit, and we've achieved it," he added.

San Antonio International Terminal plans to transfer about 13,000 containers within the framework of the current cherry season, thus doubling the movements recorded in 2021-2022
