SUCCESSFUL CSAV INVESTOR DAY IN SAN ANTONIO
San Antonio, December 15, 2021. Compañía Sudamericana de Vapores Investor Day at the Port of San Antonio gave a group of participating investors a closeup of shipping and port operations.
“We wanted to close out the year with a different kind of activity that shows investors first-hand how our industry is the sum of a complex sequence of increasingly global processes. In Chile, 90% of cargo is transported by sea, and we could see part of that here,” remarked CSAV CEO Óscar Hasbún.
The delegation had the opportunity to tour the facilities of San Antonio Terminal Internacional (STI). The port, under concession to SAAM and SSA Marine, is Chile’s leading terminal by throughput.
Hasbún thanked STI’s CEO, Rodrigo Galleguillos, who accompanied the group and shared a presentation on port operations. Meanwhile, CSAV’s Head of Investor Relations, María Elena Palma, presented some milestones for the company, which is celebrating its 150th anniversary in 2022, and outlined its sustainability focuses.
At the port, the group also learned more about the step-by-step logistics chain, observed crane operations and boarded one of SAAM Towage’s tugboats.
The activity was very well-received by investors, who had the opportunity to ask questions and gain a practical understanding of concepts. The company plans to repeat this type of event in 2022.
