As part of Mrs. Bachelet’s North American tour, the State of Delaware and the port of Wilmington welcomed the Chilean delegation on Tuesday 20 January. The port receives close to 200.000 pallets of Chilean fruit annually carried by Trans Global Shipping on Seatrade vessels.

         

Global Reefer’s MD, Francisco Labarca traveled with the Chilean delegation, which also included Ronald Bown the president of ASOEX, the Chilean fresh fruit exporters association and Jose Miguel Fernandez of exporter Subsole.

Capt Iakolev, Master of the Messina Strait which was undergoing cargo discharge at the time, explained the side-loading system of the vessel to Mrs. Bachelet, whilst the  crew on board waved and were also greeted by the President.

                              

The day ended with a reception hosted by the Chilean & American chamber of commerce (of which Seatrade USA is an active member), in honour of the President and in celebration of the strong business and friendship ties existing between Chile and the community around the Delaware river.
