New LCL Container Shipping Consolidation Service Shanghai to Santos

Weiss-Rohlig Start Weekly Groupage
Shipping News Feature

CHINA – BRAZIL - Weiss-Röhlig is now offering a direct container shipping groupage service from Shanghai to Santos and says that the routing is also an ideal solution for LCL consignments from Ningbo, as they can be transported daily from Ningbo to Shanghai and then loaded directly into the consolidated containers. The alliance between Gebrüder Weiss and Röhlig Logistics is thus providing a link between one of the fastest growing economic areas in Asia and the most important sea port in Latin America.

The cooperative concern says also that the weekly Hapag Lloyd departures ensure a fast, efficient and reliable service linking the two vital geographical trade areas causing Vojislav Jevtic, Global Product Manager for Seafreight at Gebrüder Weiss Air & Sea, to comment:

“The weekly consolidated container services between China and Brazil have expanded our product portfolio enormously. The consolidated containers are packed by us in Shanghai and transported to Santos without any need for transhipment. We are responsible for all loading checks, as well as for the loading and unloading, which means the risk of damage is reduced.

"Due to the market development in both countries, we see great potential for increasing the capacities of this connection in the near future and offering similar products throughout the rest of Asia.”
