Singapore’s Bengal Tiger Lines (BTL) is bringing 40 years of transshipment experience to South America’s River Plate with a new feeder service.

The veteran Asian common feeder operator believes the new service will “significantly improve” the efficiency of services provided to shippers in southern Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay.

“To date, a combination of port delays on the Brazilian coast and draught restrictions in the Plate are causing havoc to schedule integrity and space availability,” BTL told TradeWinds.
