The MV Julius, from the shipping line Melfi Marine Corp, transport the container that would become the two millionth teu handled by the terminal. This vessel operates on a regular service between the Mediterranean and the Caribbean.
This milestone is part of the contribution made by TC Mariel in the modernisation and economic development project of Cuba, as a key link of Mariel Special Development Zone (ZEDM).
The ZEDM was inaugurated in November 2013 and provides a production and logistics platform.
TC Mariel offers berthing in protected waters and cargo operations with a 702 m long berth and four super post-panamax dock cranes. The terminal has an annual capacity of 800,000 teu and in 2019 it handled 322,000 teu.
PSA-operated TC Mariel’s modern infrastructure and equipment, qualified personnel, advanced technology and its access channel for panamax ships, which is the process of being dredged to receive neo-panamax ships, has positioned the terminal as a strategic logistics hub with great potential within the region.
