The terminal will undergo a phased expansion in accordance with provisions stipulated in the concession agreement. The entire project will require an investment of over USD 900 million.

They have signed a design build contract with one of the major contractors in Mexico, Empresas ICA. ICA is also minority shareholder in the concessionaire company.

In phase one, a new 43 hectare container yard and 650 meter quay will be built. Additional works will include an administration building, warehouse, gates, and modern on-dock rail facilities to accommodate the growing volumes of intermodal traffic. Equipment in the first phase will include 7 Super-Post‐Panamax ship‐to‐shore gantry cranes (23 container reach), as well as electrical yard cranes (E-RTGs) and other specialized equipment.
