APMT proposes Callao design amendment

Javier Lancha, the managing director of APM Terminals Callao, has confirmed that the company put forward in March proposals to modify its existing concession contract, which currently prioritises containerised cargo.

At present, it is operating as a multipurpose terminal, which means it can handle metals, grain, fertiliser and so on, in addition to containers.

However, current discussions with the port authority have concerned a redesign of the port to reflect its multipurpose status.

According to Mr Lancha, if the original construction timetable goes ahead as planned - which would have involved civil works in 2018 associated with Phase 3 of the concession – service to general cargo importers at the port would not be able to meet demand. For this reason, changes to the concession are being sought.

He said that Phases 3, 4 and 5 are designed in a way that today’s market no longer needs, since the required berth infrastructure to handle general cargo would be significantly reduced with the implementation of Phases 3, 4 and 5.
