Puerto Coronel, the leading port operator in Chile’s central/south region, is projecting a 30% increase in containerised shipments of fish and shellfish for the remainder of the year, with the new red salmon season getting under way at the end of September.

 

Puerto Coronel has been participating in fisheries handling and shipping sector since 2009, mainly salmon and frozen mussels, and exports have increased strongly, says the port’s commercial manager, Rodrigo Schilling Norman, thanks to the port’s competitiveness, frequency of shipping services with weekly connections to Asia, Europe and North America, and its geographical location closer to the Los Lagos Region and its important commercial fisheries than the ports of the central zone (Valparaíso and San Antonio).

"Beyond the annual fluctuations, our commitment to fisheries exports is to long-term relationships, based on the level of service we are building and the efficiencies we can provide to exporters," said Schilling, noting that Tokyo, a key market for red salmon, is now on the schedule for calls to Asia.

 

"We have prepared for this season with new infrastructure and load management in the outer harbour, in addition to investing in another 160 reefer container plugs in the yard."

As well as faster arrival in Tokyo, he noted that the Russian market is also served through transhipment in Northern Europe.

 

At the beginning of this year, Puerto Coronel announced investments of US$30M, including two new ship-to-shore container cranes. These are 65 ton SWL-65m outreach cranes and they have been ordered from ZPMC. They are slated for delivery in March 2019.
