Ports moved more than 54 million tons of cargo in 2023

The concessioned ports are recovering and continue to improve their productivity, so much so that, at the end of 2023, they moved 54.2 million tons of cargo, 3.02% more than in 2022, reported the Supervisory Body for Investment in Public Use Transportation Infrastructure (Ositrán).

These figures allow us to strengthen exports, since 80% of the merchandise is transported by sea. In that sense, the modernization of port infrastructure is vital to guarantee the growth of foreign trade, the entity stressed.

Main port terminals

Among the main port terminals with the greatest movement are the ports of Callao, which concentrated 70.5% of the total load, through the Multipurpose North Terminal, managed by APM Terminals Callao SA (17.9 million MT); the New Container Terminal-South Zone, operated by DP World Callao SRL (17.4 million MT); and the Mineral Concentrate Shipping Terminal, managed by Transportadora Callao SA (2.8 million MT).

For its part, the Matarani Port Terminal (Arequipa) moved 7.5 million MT; the Salaverry Multipurpose Port Terminal (La Libertad), 3.2 million MT; the Paita Port Terminal (Piura), 2.5 million MT; while the General San Martín-Pisco Port Terminal (Ica), 2.5 million MT.

How did container traffic fare?

Meanwhile, container traffic in the concessioned port infrastructures closed with 3 million TEUs (unit equivalent to 20 feet, in Spanish), 10.07% more than in 2022.

The largest container movement corresponded to the New Container Terminal-South Zone (1.6 million TEU), followed by the North Multipurpose Terminal (1.1 million TEU), the Paita Port Terminal (318,947 TEU), the General San Martín-Pisco Port Terminal (27,873 TEU), the Matarani Port Terminal (7,065 TEU) and the New Yurimaguas-Nueva Reforma Port Terminal (1158 TEU).

In 2023, maritime traffic of ships in the ports under the supervision of Ositrán reached a total of 4,355 units, 223 ships more than in 2022. The Callao Multipurpose North Terminal stood out with 1,458 ships.
