President Hernandez: New Puerto Cortes berth to position Honduras as regional logistics hub
Date:2018-10-17 Readers:

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez recently inaugurated the new Pier 6 facility of Puerto Cortes operated by Operadora Portuaria Centroamericana S.A. de C.V. (OPC), a subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services, Inc. (ICTSI), expected to further strengthen the countrys position as Central Americas premiere logistics hub.

 

The US$145 million greenfield development, which represents the first phase of OPCs expansion work in Puertos Cortes, adds another 350 meters of quay to the existing 800 meters and depth of 14 meters.

 

OPC is now the only port in the Central America-Four (CA-4) region able to receive the largest box ships plying major trade routes in the Atlantic thanks to two of its new super post-Panamax cranes, which also increased the annual operational capacity of the terminal by 50 percent to 1.4 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs).

 

Pier number 6 positions Puerto Cortés to be the leader of the region and the Caribbean,President Hernández said at the inauguration. This is a moment in which we see dreams as something tangible.
