During the first semester of 2018, Guatemala sent bananas, melons, plantains, watermelons, mangoes, green beans, papayas, pineapples, among other products by sea to the United States. This information, along with other detailed data on Guatemalan exports by sea can be found on the latest edition of the Logistics Report, a special publication of AGEXPORT’s Competitiveness division.
This Report displays the Top 10 states for Guatemalan products and its sea entry points, which include Texas, Pennsylvania and Alabama. Readers can also find ports of entry for other areas of the US as explained on the US Opportunities Ranking 2018 published by the Guatemalan Agriculture Chamber (CAMAGRO, for its acronym in Spanish) and the Central American Business Intelligence (CABI). The products and shipping companies that disembark at these states are also detailed in the Report, said Mrs. Wendy Mena, Competitiveness Analyst at AGEXPORT.
