    ONE improves transit time on ALX1 service to catch “Cherry season” from Chile

    Ocean Network Express Pte. Ltd. informs about changes on AX1 service that will reduce the  transit time from Valparaíso to Hong Kong from end of Nov’2018 till early Jan’2019 (by  departure week), the company said in its press release. This will improve the transit time for fresh fruit from Valparaisoto to Hong Kong till 23 days.

    ONE also offers competitive transit times to Pusan, Xingang, Shanghai, Dalian. The change of rotation will start as from week 47th.

    The Red colour symbolizes “good luck” in China and carries an auspicious meaning  specially during the winter months leading up to Chinese New Year. There is cherry season in Chile — it’ s starts around early Dec.

    The popularity of Chilean cherries has soared to new heights in China with  the development of global trade and e - commerce platforms which now enables  more people in the mainland to purchase this luxury fruit through the internet.  According to customs data, Chilean cherry exports reached a record 184,809  tonnes during the 2017/18 season; out of which as much as 80 percent to 85  percent of the country's cherry output is shipped to China. Chilean cherry production volumes are projected to double in the next five years due to aggressive new plantings, particularly in the south of the country, a switch to more productive varieties with a longer post - harvest life and the implementation of new technologies  to improve orchard management and protection.

    This adjustment is done by fast sailing and temporary change of port rotation which helps the fruit to arrive faster to the retail shelves and in top quality condition; thereby enabling exporters to earn higher prices for their cherries in Chinese market.
