On the night of Wednesday, January 15, AquaChile filled a chartered cargo flight exclusively with its own salmon bound for Miami. This allowed the company to reduce its transit time and maintain its commercial commitments both in the United States and in China, despite the high demand shown today by the Santiago air terminal.
“The volume of our company, together with our logistics capacity, allows us to make decisions of this type, which are in direct benefit of our customers. We are reaching our customers in the destination markets faster and in better conditions,” said AquaChile supply chain manager Matías Silva.
The aircraft Boeing 747 - from the airline Atlas Air - made the direct flight to the United States with 105 tonnes of salmon, of which a good part corresponds to the Verlasso premium brand.
“This operation is unique in Chile and it is the first time in history that a charter flight of these dimensions is set up exclusively for a salmon farming company. The cargo agency that managed this operation was Acosta and Aguayo, in conjunction with the Atlas Air airline. All this was possible thanks to the teamwork with the AquaChile logistics area," Silva said.
