A maritime container carrying nearly 60,000 pounds of U.S. frozen chicken meat arrived at the Port of Veracruz from the Port of Savannah last week, marking a successful trial run for what could some day be an alternative means of sending poultry to Mexico.

The shipment of a container of frozen chicken leg quarters from Tyson Foods eventually could lead to the opening of a maritime route for U.S. frozen chicken meat from U.S. East Coast ports to Veracruz in the central Gulf of Mexico. It came about after a series of meetings and discussions held since 2015 among U.S. poultry meat exporters, processors and trading companies, Mexican importers, USAPEEC Mexico staff, and Friopuerto.
