LATAM Cargo connects southern Brazil

Comment on this article

LATAM Cargo has carried out its first Miami-Florianopolis flight, connecting North America with southern Brazil.

This direct route will initially have one weekly frequency and its flights will be carried out with B76F aircraft, with a 53 tonne capacity.

The state of Santa Catarina bases its economy on commercial and industrial imports, used to supply southern Brazil. Hence, this is an important milestone for LATAM Cargo, as it is the only airline that provides a direct and rapid route. Cargo from North America, Europe and Asia will be combined in the US. Particularly, Santa Catarina demands automotive, metallurgical, food, pharmaceutical and electronic products, amongst other items.

“This new route will allow us to provide a direct, stable and permanent service between the United States and Santa Catarina; it is a concrete example of our efforts to satisfy our clients’ needs. As strategic partners, we are constantly evaluating routes that promote international trade, bringing buyers and sellers together with the characteristic speed, attention and logistics excellence of our global services network”, stated Gabriel Oliva, VP Commercial for North America, Europe and Asia.

Before the Miami-Florianopolis route was implemented, international cargo entered Brazil through Guarulhos and Viracopos. It thus depended on complementary ground transportation in order to reach its final destination.
