HMM’s Far East – India – Latin America (FIL) service will now serve Porto Itapoá and connect it to some of the main ports in Asia such as Busan (South Korea), Shanghai (China), Singapore, Jakarta (Indonesia) and Kattupalli (India).

The first ship to dock at Porto Itapoá will be the MV HYUNDAI SHANGHAI ETA IOA, which is due to arrive on 8 July.

Sergni Pessoa Rosa Jr., the Director of Operations, Technology, and the Environment at Porto Itapoá, and Wlademir Cardoso Xavier, a Commercial Expert, made the announcement during a meeting with the HMM Group in Busan, South Korea.

“This is a relatively new service from HMM that is of great interest to commercial trade with Asia,” said Rosa Jr.

“It is a further option for those of our customers who need to arrange shipments with countries on that continent.”  

The FIL service was announced by HMM in October 2021 and began operating in December that year.

It experienced some changes due to the pandemic but it is now back to its original configuration.
