On the evening of October 8, Log-In Logística Intermodal announced that it will expand its coastal shipping service by serving the port of Asunción, in Paraguay.

The line will connect the main Brazilian ports to Mercosur, from Manaus to Asunción, using regular maritime services already in operation.

To reach Asunción, Log-In’s vessels will connect in Buenos Aires, from where the cargo in containers will be transferred to smaller vessels belonging to Independencia Shipping Lines (ISL), with whom Log-In signed a partnership.

Three ISL ships will make the crossing from Buenos Aires to Asunción via the Paraná River, initially on a fortnightly scale.

According to the statement from Log-In, the stretch between Buenos Aires and Asunción has great potential for navigation, since 92% of everything that is transported from Paraguay to Brazil is done by truck, and only 8% uses maritime transportation.

According to Marcio Arany, CEO of Log-In, this is an opportunity to win business over from the road modal. “We believe that this is the first step towards the development of new businesses in the region,” he stated.
