Sociedad Puerto Industrial Aguadulce (Puerto Aguadulce) has reached a new milestone with its recent handling of CMA CGM ARGENTINA – the largest-capacity vessel to arrive in Colombia. The milestone highlights Buenaventura’s position as a strategic port city for the country’s foreign trade with the Asia-Pacific region and the world.
“This news has great significance not only for the national port industry, but also for Buenaventura, for foreign trade and the country. In addition to ratifying the positive evolution seen in overcoming the challenges that the world has been facing during the last three years, this is a message of confidence and credibility for the Aguadulce terminal for its dedication and commitment in terms of service levels, safety, infrastructure, productivity, and the application of high international standards in its operations,” says Miguel Abisambra, Sociedad Industrial Puerto Aguadulce president.
The vessel’s arrival highlights the great operating capacity and strategic location of Puerto Aguadulce, in addition to its commitment to reviving and strengthening Colombia’s economy. 
The 15,720-TEU state-of-the-art vessel was built in 2019 and sails under the Maltese flag. It is owned by the CMA CGM Group, one of the world leaders in maritime transport and logistics with operations in Colombia’s main ports.
