CMSA, which operates the Second Specialised Container Terminal (TEC-II), achieved the feat during the call of CMA CGM Jacques Joseph on December 29.
'The event we are celebrating would not have been possible without the support of all our clients, shipping agents, customs agents, carriers, authorities, and of course the participation of our collaborators-the valuable men and women who work every day with responsibility and best attitude to serve,' said CMSA chief executive Fortino Landeros.
'Despite the challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, Contecon Manzanillo's operations did not stop,' said CMSA chief executive Fortino Landeros.
'We continued to comply with the strictest health standards and implemented work-from-home and other work schemes that were a complete success,' he said.
With a 33 per cent market share in Manzanillo, CMSA is competitively positioned as the only terminal capable of meeting the continuously growing volume requirement at the Port of Manzanillo. Its 34-year concession period covers 72.42 hectares, 70 per cent of which has been developed and accounts for a dynamic capacity of 1.66 million TEU.
Equipped with world-class infrastructure facilities, the terminal has a 53-hectare container yard - the largest in the port - with a total of 786 reefer plugs. TEC-II is also the only terminal that has inspection points for refrigerated merchandise and dry cargo for faster customer transactions.
The Port of Manzanillo is Mexico's most important port and the third most important in the Latin America region, the terminal said in a statement.
