Operadora Portuaria Centroamericana (OPC), the Honduran unit of International Container Terminal Services Inc., has signed a sister port agreement with the Port of Big Creek in Belize to strengthen relations and promote interconnectivity between the two Central American ports.

The partnership benefits both ports and their respective areas of influence.

Since commencing operations in 2013, OPC has been continuously investing in Puerto Cortés — improving infrastructure, acquiring new equipment, and rolling out state-of-the-art port technology.

Cheaper goods for region
The infusions aim to transform the region’s trade and reduce the cost of goods for the end consumer.

These investments, along with the modernization of Puerto Cortés, are expected to pay off as the agreement with the Port of Big Creek is seen to increase the flow of cargo through the terminal.

“We are helping to transform the region through innovation, technology and the application of processes, as well as best international practices. This gives us tangible advantages among the terminals in the isthmus and positions us as the better option for cargo and transportation, unloading of containers and general cargo in the region,” OPC Director-General Juan Corujo said.
