Port Freeport-June 2

The expansion of Velasco Container Terminal was approved back in November 2019. It involved the construction of the multipurpose Berth 8 as well as a 927 ft (282.6 m) extension to the existing 800 ft (243.8 m) Berth 7 plus an 85 ft (26 m) ro-ro platform. 

According to Port Freeport, the ro-ro platform at the end of Berth 8 will enable opportunities for further growth in the ro-ro segment and handle finished vehicles, high and heavy and breakbulk cargoes.
