Terminal History

 

In 1994, Evergreen Group proposed to build a modern container terminal in Panama.  In 1995, after choosing the site and made the viability studies, the Evergreen Group submitted to the Panamanian Government a scheme for the development of a modern container terminal in Coco Solo North.  The Evergreen Group had established a subsidiary company called Colon Container Terminal, S.A. to execute the project and operate the terminal.

 

The terminal was built in the same place where a former US navy base was in.

 

In the Phase I were invested 110 million US dollars.

In October 1997, Colon Container Terminal, S.A. started operations, opening a world of opportunities in Panama as an intermodal hub for cargo transshipment.

 

In 2003, CCT started the construction of the phase II, which counts with approximately 12 hectares of land and construction of pier no.3. In this phase were invested 55 million US dollars.

 

In 2008, CCT initiated the construction of the sub-phase I of phase III that consists of a new wharf (pier 4) of 320 meters length and 15 meters depth and new container yard area for cargo storage.

 

With this investment, we are planning to remain as transshipment hub of the Americas, with the best logistics equipment and human resource to keep offering our  actual and potential customers the best service.
