History[edit] In November 2013, the Mexican navy seized the port from criminal gangs.[2]

Description[edit] Lázaro Cárdenas is home to a deep-water seaport that handles container, dry bulk, and liquid cargo. The port currently has one container terminal, which handled 1.24 million TEU in 2012, and has a total capacity of 2.2 million TEU annually.[1] APMT has plans to build an additional container terminal that would bring the port's capacity to 3.4 million TEU in 2015 and 6.5 million TEU in 2020.[3] Cargo moves to and from the port by road and rail equally, with rail service provided exclusively by Kansas City Southern de México. The port is expected to become a major container facility due to congestion at the U.S. ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and its relative proximity to major cities such as Chicago, Kansas City, and Houston. In preparation for the port's increased capacity, railway and highway infrastructure running north-south through the center of Mexico has been upgraded in recent years to handle the anticipated increase in volume of goods bound for the United States using this transportation corridor.[4] If a proposed government-backed Pacific port is built at Punta Colonet, Baja California, goods flowing to U.S. states like Arizona and Nevada could bypass the congested Los Angeles region with closer access those markets, providing increased competition with Lázaro Cárdenas.[4] Lázaro Cárdenas is the terminus of the Salamanca-Lazaro Cardenas gas pipeline.[5]

Statistics[edit] In 2012, the Port of Lázaro Cárdenas handled 30,671,996 tonnes of cargo and 1,242,777 TEU's, making the busiest cargo port in Mexico and one of the largest container ports in the country.[1] General statistics between 2001 - 2007[6] Year 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 RoRo (nr of automobiles) 0 24,923 88,669 114,276 112,457 Liquid bulk* 932,000 919,000 1,281,000 1,841,000 2,275,000 Dry bulk* 10,165,000 12,940,000 13,895,000 11,234,000 5,804,000 Break bulk* 2,910,000 2,785,000 2,587,000 2,719,000 1,809,000 Containers (TEU's) 43,445 132,479 160,696 270,240 524,791 Containers* 323,000 1,030,000 1,159,000 1,544,000 4,240,000 Total*' 14,330,000 17,674,000 18,992,000 17,693,000 20,860,647 * figures in tonnes
