Our Terminal

In 2016, APM Terminals and Colombian-based port and terminal operating company, Compañia de Puertos Asociados S.A. (Compas S.A.) formed Cartagena Container Terminal Operator (CCTO). The joint venture will manage and develop the multi-purpose terminal in Colombia’s second-busiest container port, located at the northern tip of South America on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. 

APM Terminals holds a 51% majority share in the terminal, which offers annual throughput capacities of 250,000 TEUs and 3 million tons of general cargo.

With a planned investment of US$ 200 million, over the coming years CCTO will add three Ship-to-Shore cranes, dredge to increase draft to 14,5 meters and automate gates for maximum efficiency. This will allow the terminal to handle new panama vessels of up to 13,000 TEU capacity, which are now able to transit the Panama Canal following its lock-widening project completed in summer 2016.
