MOL wins Toyota Argentina contract

Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has won a contract to transport vehicles manufactured at Toyota Argentina to ports on West Coast South America and West Coast Central America.

Vehicles produced at Toyota’s Zarate plant will be exported to the majority of the Latin American region.

With the acquisition of this new contract, MOL has restructured the existing US East Coast – West Coast South America route to connect Europe with East Coast South America, via the Strait of Magellan, West Coast South America, and West Coast Central America.

“The revised service allows MOL to respond swiftly to changes in demand for transport of completed vehicles in this region, with direct service from East Coast South America to West Coast South America and West Coast Central America,” MOL said in a release today.
