The Port of Cork in Ireland has opened a new container terminal, called Cork Container Terminal, located in Ringaskiddy.
The new US$86 million box terminal will have the capacity to handle 330,000 TEU, once it will be fully operational.
Cork Chamber said the launch of the Port of Cork Company’s new 135,000m² terminal in Ireland represents a big step forward for Cork and the Port of Cork.
“This new strategic terminal will offer greater efficiencies, in fact, the highest of any European port thus demonstrating the global nature of our region when it comes to international trade, connectivity and innovation,” said Ronan Murray, President of Cork Chamber.
“As Cork continues to grow and position itself on a global scale, it’s important the Government also continues with the accelerated delivery of the M28 to compliment this new terminal development and maintain the strategic enhancement of the Cork region,” he added.
