The multipurpose Port of Callao is the gateway to Peru – the fourth largest economy in South America. The port is located only 15 kilometers from the capital city Lima and is the largest port not only in Peru but on the entire West Coast of South America.
APM Terminals won the public privatization tender for the Muelle Norte Terminal in April 2011 and began operations in the now renamed APM Terminals Callao in July 2011. APM Terminals is the majority shareholder of the terminal with other partners being Callao Port Holdings B.V. and the Peruvian company Central Portuaria.
APM Terminals Callao is a multi-purpose terminal capable of handling both containerized cargo and general cargo such as metals, grains, fertilizers and chemicals, coal, vegetable and fish oils and machinery, to name a few.
In addition to building on the existing operation, APM Terminals has extensive modernization plans that will transform APM Terminals Callao into a benchmark for South American port operations. The first two phases of construction are expected to be completed by 2015. The advantageous natural location of the terminal combined with the modernization of the facilities will immediately provide our broad customer base the opportunity to grow.
APM Terminals Callao is ready to provide efficient and reliable services today and into the future.
