TecPlata, Interntational Container Terminal Services' (ICTSI) business unit in Argentina, has entered into an agreement with Uruguay-based feeder operator Vessel SA for the operation of a new weekly service between the La Plata Port and the Port of Montevideo in Uruguay.

The service, which will link TecPlata with Montevideo port operators Montecon and Terminal Cuenca del Plata, will allow import and export cargo to reach new markets and expand TecPlata's services further across the Gulf Region, the US East Coast, the Mediterranean, and Northern Europe. It will also add to TecPlata's already consolidated services connecting to Brazil and Asia and provide customers with new alternatives as cargo from the Santa Fe – La Plata logistics corridor can be integrated into the new service.

The service is set to commence in July and will be operated by Vessel SA's 650TEU barge Gabrielle, which also features 50 connections for reefer containers.
