New Costa Rican terminal to triple state port's capacity

Friday, September 28, 2018


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.
