Dock 1, with 5 tons per square meter capacity and an official draft of 40 feet (12.20 m), is equipped with two Clyde 24 duty-cycle cranes with structural boom for 36 tons and an unloading capacity of 600 tons/hr each. The cranes are mounted on rails, being able to move throughout the whole length of the ship, also having a system to spin on their own axis, which gives them a great handling capacity. Also, this berthing position is equipped with a 48” wide and 600 m. long conveyor system to operate bulk cargo. These conveyors are fed by two hoppers on the dock which receive the material directly from the cranes, and they have a capacity of 1,600 tons/hour.

Dock 2, with a cargo capacity of 15 tons per square meter and an official draft of 40 feet (12.20 meters), is designed for operation of heavy bulk materials, steel products and pieces of great volume. This dock is equipped with three Clyde 20 duty-cycle cranes with structural boom for 18 tons and unloading capacity of 300 tons/hour each.

For the different types of cargo, Cooper/T. Smith de México, has 25 different grabs with capacity of 15, 10, 8, 5, 4, 3.5 and 2 cubic yards which allow the handling of any type of products (density and grading).
