To leverage rising automotive import traffic in Latin America, particularly in Chile, multinational logistics agency Agunsa has partnered with Japanese shipping firm “K” Line to create a dedicated automotive logistics company.
The new company, KAR Logistics, offers integrated transportation services as well as warehousing, customization, pre-delivery inspection, and spare parts services. Its target is automotive companies and finished vehicle importers in Chile and throughout Latin America.
Located near the Chilean port of San Antonio, in the country’s Valparaíso region, KAR Logistics provides cross-docking and warehousing facilities. It also maintains a presence in Noviciado, close to the capital Santiago, where it can accommodate up to 7,000 finished vehicles. The company operates its own fleet of GPS-equipped car transporters and is currently working with General Motors.
