In addition, we have a well-consolidated leadership in the cruise liner sector, handling approximately 54% of total calls at Montevideo and Punta del Este. In 2010 we founded Punta del Este Tender Services, in order to cope with the increasing demand of services to cruise passengers.
The rhythm of the globalized world and its new demands, led to the creation of REPREMAR Logistics. Originally conceived in 1996 as a division of REPREMAR Shipping to develop Air & Ocean cargo, REPREMAR Logistics became independent on May 1st, 1999. Today, being one of the leading regional freight forwarders involved in the Asia - South America East Coast trade, REPREMAR Logistics is keeping the pace and continues to expand its services and representations based on a dynamic and professional management, as well as committed personnel with a strong dedication to customer service and satisfaction.
The customer base and experience we developed through the years led us to open our own freight forwarding offices in the region (São Paulo, Asunción, Santiago & Iquique), under our Southcargo brand.
Southcargo is a modern, high-spirited company, expanding within the region based on REPREMAR's track record and know-how in the forwarding & logistics field.
The year 2008 marks the entry of the REPREMAR Group to the air cargo GSA activities, through its specialized business unit, REPREMAR Air Cargo. After these years of hard work and stable growth we are proud to say that REPREMAR Air Cargo has expanded its service coverage to other countries in the region as Paraguay and Bolivia becoming the designated agent by major leading Airlines to develop their air cargo sales in South America.
Throughout our history, we have always been proactive to explore and generate partnerships and alliances with our principals and customers, strengthening our relationships and seeking for the diversification of our businesses.
