ONE expands service in West Coast South America

Container alliance Ocean Network Express (ONE) has added a new service to the West Coast of South America for shippers using the port of Jacksonville.

ONE has added Rodman, Panama as a new port of call on its EC1 US East Coast Service, connecting Jacksonville port’s TraPac Container Terminal at Dames Point to six new destinations on the West Coast of South America.

The addition of a Rodman port call provides connections from Jacksonville to Guayaquil in Ecuador, Paita and Callao in Peru, Buenaventura in Colombia, and Puerto Angamos, Lirquén, San Antonio and Coronel in Chile.

“We continue to work with our ocean carrier partners to expand service offerings from Jacksonville,” said Rail Lisa Wheldon, director of trade development for Jacksonville Port Authority (Jaxport). “This service further connects Northeast Florida exporters, including the area’s robust forest products sector, to an important and growing segment of the global economy.”

ONE’s EC1 service also offers direct container service from Jacksonville to Tokyo and Kobe, in Japan, Busan in South Korea, Xiamen, Yantian, and Hong Kong of China, and Kaohsiung in Taiwan.
