CP Ships’ ANZDL (Australia-New Zealand Direct Line) has expanded its service to the growing South American market with a fortnightly service between Peru, Chile and Australasia.
The new service is operating southbound to Australasia with transit times as fast as 35 days from Callao, Peru to Auckland and 40 days from Callao to Melbourne. ANZDL is working with another CP Ships sister company, Americana Ships, to provide the service.
Americana Ships is loading ANZDL’s cargo at the ports of Callao in Peru and San Antonio in Chile and then calling on the Port of Manzanillo where the cargo is transloaded onto one of ANZDL’s Australasian bound vessels.
A variety of commodities move in this trade lane, including dry fish meal, machinery, timber, wine, chemicals, and fertilizer.
ANZDL is represented in Chile by Multimar S.A. and in Peru by Navinter Navieras Intermares S.A.
The company says a northbound service is also currently in the works.
