New logistics centre for Puerto Coronel

Chile’s Puerto Coronel has inaugurated a new facility on its landside called the “Coronel Logistics Center” (CLC). Built at a cost of US$1M, the CLC involved the construction of a new building and road improvements and is part of an investment plan aimed at strengthening infrastructure and improving the port’s service quality.


Javier Anwandter, general manager of Puerto Coronel, said the new CLC is “a building delivered primarily to the service of carriers. It is a much more modern, comfortable and technology service that speeds up the process of receiving cargo”. The 560-square-meter building processes gate transactions, a process the port said is “complemented by the promotion of digital transportation service scheduling platforms”.

Coronel receives an average of 750 trucks every day, and can handle a peak of 1,200 vehicles in the same period. “Today we are mobilizing about 30,000 containers per month, and that required an inland prepared to receive these cargos in a good way”, said Anwandter.


“In last February we received two new STS cranes and currently our productivity in container ships exceeds 100 movements per hour, and that forces us to have better infrastructure to sustain that level of productivity”, he added.


Puerto Coronel services central-southern Chile. In 2018, it handled 7.4 million tons of cargo from different productive sectors, including cargo from Argentina.
