Triton Overseas Transport, a global non-vessel operating common carrier and international freight service provider, announced Monday the launch of a less-than-container-load export service from Houston to destinations throughout Central America and the north coast of South America.
The service enhances Triton’s sailings to the growing trade regions and provides transportation at competitive rates to its international customer base, the company said.
“Central and South America hold a large consumer base that relies on U.S. exports to meet much of their trade needs,” Sean Ratliff, sales associate at Triton Overseas Transportation said in a statement.
According to the U.S. Commercial Service, Central America is a growing market for U.S. exports and holds 40 million potential buyers. Utilizing its strategic location near the Gulf Coast, Triton is working with agents throughout Central and South America to increase all-water transportation routes to the region.
