ICTSI Mexico invests US$8 million in new equipment

Contecon Manzanillo (CMSA), International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s business unit operating at the Port of Manzanillo in Mexico, has invested US$8 million in the addition of four new rubber tired gantries (RTG) to its equipment fleet.

ICTSI believes that the RTGs will help speed up container loading and unloading times at the terminal.

“With the integration of these RTGs, in addition to the four that we received at the beginning of 2022, we will double our capacity to move cargo–especially by rail–thus adapting to the requirements of the market and our clients,” said José Antonio Contreras, CMSA chief executive officer.

Contreras added, “the arrival of this equipment, together with the investment of US$230 million in infrastructure and equipment that we are going to start in a few weeks, as well as the construction by ASIPONA of the new exclusive access road to the northern zone of the port and the arrival of the new x-ray equipment for Customs, will consolidate and make the operation of our terminal in Manzanillo more efficient.”
