ICTSI’s Contecon Manzanillo terminal adds BAL Container Line’s China-Mexico Service


Contecon Manzanillo (CMSA) International Container Terminal Services, Inc.’s (ICTSI) Mexican subsidiary, has received the first call of BAL Container Line’s China – Mexico (CMX) service.

The CMX service made its first call at the Port of Manzanillo on 16 December with the arrival of the 5,060 TEU S SANTIAGO – one of the eight boxships operating the service.

All eight ships have a combined capacity of 31,360 TEU.

José Antonio Contreras, CMSA CEO, said: “The addition of BAL Container Line to the Contecon Family contributes to the sustained growth that the company has maintained in 2021, consolidating our position as the specialized container terminal with the highest growth rate in the port.”

BAL Container Line is a subsidiary of Shandong Lcang International Logistics.

With biweekly calls at CMSA, the service links the Port of Manzanillo to the Ports of Ningbo, Qingdao, Yantian and Lazaro Lázaro Cárdenas.

CMSA operates the second specialised container terminal at the Port of Manzanillo.

In December 2021 ICTSI Contecon announced it is investing $230 million to expand the terminal’s facilities to serve the growing maritime traffic at the port.
