APM Terminals Moín welcomes 4,000th vessel

Moín Container Terminal (TCM) in Costa Rica welcomed its 4,000th vessel on 13 January after approximately four years since its inauguration in 2019.

The Limón-Moín Port complex can accommodate ships with greater draught, up to 8,500 TEUs, thanks to infrastructure improvements that have been made during the last three years.

Victor Konen, commercial director of APM Terminals Moín, stated that these improvements have enabled APM Terminals Moín to accommodate new services. "For example, a trend we’re currently seeing is services that connect Ecuador, Peru, (passing the Panama Canal), Costa Rica and Europe (both to Northern Europe and the Mediterranean)," he pointed out.

Meanwhile, a commemorative plaque was presented to the captain of the 2,500 TEU boxship Margarete Schulte, which arrived from Manzanillo, Panama, and continued to Cork, Ireland, with a primary cargo of pineapples and bananas.
