In this case, the inauguration of this route responds to an initiative that will allow us to offer more capacity and provide more options to be present in the most relevant markets," says Gudny Genskowsky, Network Director at LATAM Cargo.

Focused on supporting the flower business, this route will favor the transportation of flowers from Ecuador, diversifying the export destinations of this product, adding Los Angeles (LAX) as a new delivery point, to the existing ones of Miami and Amsterdam.

In addition to Los Angeles, LATAM Cargo added Houston to its network, which will allow its customers to significantly reduce transportation times from the west coast and the southern region of the United States to South America, benefiting the movement of industrial and electronic components, machinery, engines, auto parts, among others.
