The Tecplata Container Terminal, which operates in Puerto de La Plata (Argentina), has signed agreements with YPF and Dow to operate on-site cargoes, joining those operating regularly in the terminal from the start of operations, last April.

Both companies will ship their cargo on the ships of LogIn, a Brazilian container transportation company that stops at TecPlata.

YPF will export products from its “Lubricants” division to the Port of Santos and will also import inputs from the Brazilian port of Pecém.

In addition, the “Chemicals” area of ​​the state oil company also began to transport isotanks from TecPlata Terminal to Brazil.

Meanwhile, the petrochemical company Dow will export polyethylene from the container terminal of Puerto La Plata to the port of Itajaí in Santa Catarina.

TecPlata has an installed capacity capable of operating 450,000 TEUs and its infrastructure can be expanded to accommodate 1m TEUs.

The terminal is owned by Philippine holding company ICTSI, one of the largest port operators in the world, with 32 terminals in 19 countries. They have demanded an investment of more than 450m dollars.

Located 60 kilometers from Buenos Aires, TecPlata occupies an area of ​​41 hectares, of which 25 are areas for containers.
