April 11, 2019 / handyshippingguide

The Philippine-based port operator International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI), has announced the official opening of TecPlata, the new container terminal located in Argentina's Puerto de La Plata, which began operations with the arrival of Jacarandá, a vessel from the fleet of Log-In, a Brazilian shipping line which recently signed an agreement with TecPlata.The arrival of the vessel, which has an overall length (LOA) of 218 metres and a cargo capacity of almost 38 tonnes, marked the start of Log-In’s fortnightly operations at the terminal. Bruno Porchietto, TecPlata CEO, commented:“This a first step for the company, and we firmly believe that this will pave the way for new agreements with more operators to maximise our current installed capacity of 450,000 TEUs. The terminal may also be expanded to twice its existing capacity to over 1 million TEUs.”
