New shipping service seeks to avoid land border crossings

A Managua shipping firm has opened a service to transport freight by sea from Corinto, Nicaragua, to Panamá along the Pacific coast, including that of Costa Rica.

The firm is Naviera Mercante de Nicaragua S.A. Said the firm to justify its service:

“Since Nicaragua lacks a well-equipped deep water port at the Atlantic Coast, most of its import or export cargo is handled through the neighboring international ports such as Port Cortes, Honduras, and Puerto Limón, Costa Rica. In order to comply with this, the shipping lines must contract the service of transportation companies and have their cargo moved over long distances and through different international border crossing.

“Our direct feeder service can be the solution to make the service more competitive by providing a most comprehensive connection from Nicaragua to the hub ports of Panama West Coast.”
