NYK RORO launches new direct service from Europe to South America West Coast

NYK is delighted to announce the commencement of a new direct RORO service from Europe to South America West Coast.

This new service will start in April 2020 and have a monthly frequency, with ports of call being Vigo, Southampton, Bremerhaven and Zeebrugge in Europe and Callao, Iquique & San Antonio in South America.

The service will be covered by a 6,000 car capacity tonnage with a ramp capacity of 150 tons, so will be able to accept both a wide mix of self-driveable and static cargo.

Phil O’Reilly, Marketing Director of RORO at NYK commented: “’The current transit time being offered to South America on this service is the quickest in the market, with Iquique being reached in around 23 days. We look forward to receiving all cargo enquiries on this new trade lane.’’
