 Maersk Line has announced a new direct service with short transit time from West Coast South America to Japan for dry and reefer cargo.

In our continuous efforts to provide our customers with a competitive and fast connection from West Coast South America to Japan, we will now offer a new short transit time service from San Antonio and San Vicente in Chile to Yokohama, Japan for both dry and reefer cargo.
 This service will also offer improved service time from Ecuador, Bolivia and Peru.
Meanwhile,  Maersk Line's AC2 loop, which operates between Asia, and the western coasts of Mexico, Panama and Colombia, is in the process of upgrading to larger vessels, according to the Danish ocean carrier's most recent online service schedules. 
Between Nov. 15 and Dec. 6, the service is adding four 13,102-TEU vessels to replace three 9640-TEU vessels and one 11,294-TEU vessel.
