DP World Callao’s Muelle Sur terminal is located near the capital of Lima in the Port of Callao – the largest container port on the west coast of South America. The new facility, set to open in April 2010 will comprise a 650 m quay able to accommodate Super post-Panamax vessels. Muelle Sur is one of nearly 40 terminals globally – nine in the Americas – that have chosen to implement SPARCS N4 and according to the company, another 15 potential SPARCS N4 customers are in the pipeline.
The Muelle Sur terminal will have an annual capacity of about 850,000 teu in its first phase, and a maximum capacity of about 1.4m teu in the second phase.
DP World Callao will rely on the web-based SPARCS N4 operating system to govern the movement of all container logistics and operations from gate to yard to vessel and to offer users improved customer support, lower operating costs and increased stacking yard capacity. SPARCS N4 will provide the Muelle Sur terminal greater control over resources for operations to quickly and intelligently respond to changes or disruptions in the flow of cargo.
