John Hoss, Port Commissioner, noted that the Velasco Terminal has been a challenge for the past years.  The Board has made a priority to get it into operation.  The reconstruction is scheduled to be completed by June 2013.  Mr. Carlson’s experience in container business will help facilitate its successful utilization.
