San Antonio, November 16, 2018. This morning San Antonio Terminal Internacional (STI) reached one million TEUs transferred during 2018, which it has achieved for the past seven years at the concessioned terminal.
This milestone was attained following the docking of the vessel JPO Capricornius on its Americas route, which included 2,072 movements. The specific container marketing one million TEUs was the Hamburg Süd SUDU 694784-0.
