Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) the world-leading marine, cargo and supply chain solutions provider, is driving forward in South America with newly completed operations in Argentina and Panama as the car carriers agent for Compañía Sud Americana de Vapores (CSAV).
As general and port agents for the car carriers division of CSAV Group, the largest shipping company in Latin America, ISS managed the arrival of CSAV Rio Maipo at Zarate port in Argentina, successfully handling 1,648 vehicles. Most recently, ISS managed the arrival of CSAV Rio Nevado in Panama, with this vessel also transiting the Panama Canal.
CSAV appointed ISS at the end of 2014 to attend one of its car carrier vessels at Callao port, Peru, when it successfully discharged 1,825 vehicles. This growing regional nomination expands ISS’ expertise and growth in the market since it first acted as a car carriers’ agent in 1999 in Ecuador.
