We help economies grow and nations prosper.
Since 2006 we have the concession to operate Muelle Sur, the most important marine terminal in Peru, with 55% of the total container traffic of the Port of Callao. We have invested more than USD 500 million in port infrastructure on reclaimed land, allowing to handle more than 1.3 million TEUs, making the Port of Callao a competitive port at a regional and global level for the Peruvian foreign trade.
DP World made the largest investment in the modern history of the port industry in Peru. Through DP World Callao, a wholly owned subsidiary, we are the operator of Muelle Sur, the gateway to Peruvian commerce. Located 13 km to the west of the capital, Lima, Muelle Sur is the main container terminal of the Port of Callao, having approximately 60% of the market share in a port that handles almost 90% of the total container trade Peruvian. In 2019, we handled 1.35 billion TEUs transported on more than 700 ship calls.
With an investment of nearly $ 400 million, a modern container terminal was built on reclaimed land. It has a 650 meter continuous quay line with a depth of 16 meters, equipped with 7 super post panamax quay cranes, 21 RTGs, gates with OCR system and other software capabilities. In May 2010, the operations in our terminal began and because of the work of our dedicated team of 800 employees, we have delivered high quality services to our customers, making DP World Callao one of the most productive terminals on the West Coast of South America.
