ICTSI in Latin America reaches new operational milestone

CMA CGM Alexander Von Humboldt arrived at Contecon Manzanillo (CMSA) in Mexico and Sociedad Puerto Industrial Aguadulce (SPIA) in Colombia, marking a new operational milestone for International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI).

The 396-meter-long vessel is the first of its size in Latin America to operate on a regular basis. Its presence highlights CMSA and SPIA's ability to efficiently handle larger vessels and encourage economies of scale. CMA CGM Alexander Von Himboldt is deployed on the Asia Central South America 1 (ACSA1) service, which connects Asia and Latin America.

The arrival of the vessel at the Port of Manzanillo points out Mexico's position and effect on global trade, as well as CMSA's commitment to significantly contribute to the national economy.

"The arrival of this vessel represents an important step forward for SPIA in Buenaventura, Colombia, and in general, for Latin America. It demonstrates that SPIA has the experience, talent and optimal conditions that allow it to adapt to the new port and maritime dynamics of the world, making our terminal visible for the arrival of future larger vessels," stated Álvaro Otero, SPIA's general manager.

Furthermore, the arrival of the vessel maintains SPIA's status as the preferred terminal in the Colombian Pacific. Because of SPIA's capacity and shipping lines' trust in its infrastructure and service, the terminal has become the major destination for the most important ships that arrive in Colombia.

"With the historic arrival of the CMA CGM Alexander Von Humboldt, Mexico is at the gates of a new era in maritime transport, increasingly larger ships that enhance economies of scale and cost optimization. We have prepared for this moment in recent years, designing and sizing our terminal to be able to serve these ships. It is our obligation to ensure that Mexican foreign trade has competitive and efficient maritime logistics," explained José Antonio Contreras, CMSA's chief executive officer.
