Wilson Sons expands service to Central America and the US

Wilson Sons has announced an expansion of weekly ships at Salvador Container Terminal, with calls in Central America and the US to serve the import and export market.

As Maersk reinstalls this service, the Salvador terminal will be offering four services calling in the main ports in these regions, offering outstanding logistics solutions to the foreign trade chain. 

According to Demir Lourenço, Executive Director of Salvador Container Terminal, multiple competitive advantages have supported the reinstatement of the UCLA service.

“These are strategies that range from escaping the current bottlenecks in other ports, good receptivity to the specificities that the terminal offers, such as its strategic location, given the infrastructure that we offer and the privileged natural conditions of Baía de Todos-os-Santos, with excellent sea and land access conditions,” said Lourenço.

“In terms of operational efficiency, we have reached 118 movements per hour (operation on a single ship).

“This performance results from the current infrastructure and the team we have built from the investments made, which increased the availability of mooring berths, cementing the status of Salvador as a highly valuable alternative for the development of Brazil’s supply chain.”

Last summer, Wilson Sons announced its plans to implement renewable energy facilities at Brazil’s Rio Grande Container Terminal.
