Triton Builds upon Recently Launched Service

January 6, 2014

Triton Overseas Transport, a global non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) and international freight service provider, today announced the recent launch of a less-than-container-load (LCL) export service from Houston to destinations throughout Central America and the north coast of South America.  The newly launched service enhances Triton’s sailings to the growing trade regions and provides reliable, fast transportation at competitive rates to its international customer base.

“Central and South America hold a large consumer base that relies on U.S. exports to meet much of their trade needs.  Seated in the Gulf of Mexico, Triton is excited to open two previously underutilized LCL trade lanes to the region,” commented Sean Ratliff, sales associate at Triton Overseas Transportation. 

According to the U.S. Commercial Service, Central America is a growing market for U.S. exports and holds 40 million potential buyers.  Because the region has yet to fully advance its domestic manufacturing capabilities, it relies on imports; an estimated 50 percent of imports are from the United States.  Utilizing its strategic location near the Gulf Coast, Triton is working with agents throughout Central and South America to increase all-water transportation routes to the region.  Competitive rates, a weekly sailing schedule and expedited transit times are enhancing efficiency for customers worldwide.
