New Costa Rican terminal to triple state port's capacity
The new container port at Moín on Costa Rica's Caribbean coast will, triple the loading and unloading capacity at the state-owned neighboring Japdeva port.
Every hour, each of the six cranes of APM Terminals, the new port's Hague-based operator, makes six movements. Meanwhile, the Japdeva port can scarcely manage 10.
The improvement in loading and unloading cargo will represent thousands of dollars a day in savings.
The terminal will be able to handle post-panamax vessels and is due to come on stream next February.
