DGX Increases West Coast to Latin/South America Offerings

Rancho Dominguez, Calif.-based NVOCC Dependable Global Express, which operates under the name DGX, announced Wednesday that it plans to increase its less-than-container-load all-water service to a weekly schedule from Los Angeles directly to Valparaiso, Chile.

DGX has also begun a new bi-weekly ocean LCL service from Los Angeles to the Caribbean and northern South America utilizing Colon, Panama as its hub.

The Chile service offers arrival in Valparaiso 18 days after departure from Los Angeles with direct steaming down the west coast of South America.

"We are one of the very few logistics companies providing all water LCL service to Chile from the West Coast. We believe DGX offers the best value because of this direct, all water route." DGX Latin American Tradelane Manager Antonio Bellido said.

DGX is offering LCL service to the Caribbean with the firm's new bi-weekly sailings from Los Angeles to Colon, Panama.

Bellido said that the 9-day all water service to Colon with transshipment to any island in the Caribbean, reduces delivery time compared to utilizing the traditional Miami-to-Latin America gateway.

"We are the only direct service for LCL cargo into the Caribbean from the West Coast," Bellido said.

Beelindo said the Valparaiso service cut off time for cargo is Friday with sailings on the following Wednesday; for the Caribbean cut off time is Tuesday with ship's departure on Friday.

DGX is the international sea division of the Dependable Companies, a group of corporations providing air, ocean and surface domestic and global transportation. Other companies include DHX-Dependable Hawaiian Express, one of the largest freight forwarders serving Hawaii and Guam; Dependable AirCargo Express, which provides air service to U.S. and international destinations; Dependable Highway Express, an LTL and trailer load trucking company; Dependable Distribution Centers, a public warehousing company managing more than 2 million square feet of warehousing space; and, Dependable Logistics Solution.
