"These new ships are larger, faster and even more efficient and reliable," says Juan Manuel Gonzalez, Senior Vice President. "We have also expanded our routes and upgraded other services, especially those available through the website."The TMM Guanajuato will begin operations on the Mexico-Asia Express service, before transferring to the Gulf-Mexico-Americas service in early February.The ship has 400 reefer slots and so it is particularly suited to carrying the wide range of temperature-controlled cargo from the East Coast of South America to the Gulf of Mexico.The Gulf-Mexico-Americas service operates a weekly fixed day service over two loops, calling at Veracruz, Altamira, Houston, New Orleans, Miami, Port of Spain, Salvador, Rio De Janeiro, Vitória, Santos, Buenos Aires, Rio Grande, Itajai and Puerto Cabello.
