Unifeeder Group, part of the DP World Group, has launched a new direct service connecting four ports in Colombia and the Port of Manzanillo in Panama.
The new service offers coverage for containerised freight between the North Colombian Ports of Turbo, Santa Marta, Cartagena, Barranquilla, and Manzanillo, with short transit times. It is particularly designed for export enterprises dealing with time-sensitive items such as fresh fruits.
According to DP World, the service adds a degree of flexibility by allowing additional terminals to be called at hub ports, subject to enticement.
Since October 2022, DP World Marine Services has successfully introduced 19 new shipping routes.
DP World Marine Services is expanding its routes, including the Vietnam Indonesia Service (VIS) in April 2023 and the India Middle East Service (IMS) in August 2023, among others.
These routes smoothly connect significant ports, forming a strong network that expands trading prospects for enterprises in a variety of industries.
The group has reportedly prioritised enhancing the frequency and dependability of its services to support its regional development.
To address the increasing need for efficient shipping solutions, the company has strategically deployed new vessels, streamlined rotations, and implemented shuttle services.
Jesper Kristensen, Group COO of Marine Services at DP World, said: “This significant expansion of our global network reinforces DP World Marine Services’ commitment to providing unparalleled shipping solutions. Our goal is to not only meet but exceed the expectations of our customers by offering reliable and efficient services across diverse trade routes.”
