Development of Port Infrastructure for the Second Phase at LM17
The average of container throughput since 2010 to 2014 increased 21% approximately. Since the actual container throughput at LM17 was 133,666 Teu in 2014, PPAP forecasts that the demand for container handling will be 165,000TEUs �in 2016. Such volume requires more proper port facilities and equipment; therefore, to assure the port�s ability to handle containers increasing yearly, PPAP will promote the development of port infrastructure for the second phase at LM17.
