Second attempt, Terminal in Veracruz

Updated: Nov 17, 2022

It will be on December 22 of this year when the Administration of the National Port System (Asipona) Veracruz issues the tender ruling regarding the construction, equipment and operation of a Mixed Cargo Terminal in the port expansion area, in a second attempt to develop this infrastructure that its previous awardee, Infraestructura Portuaria Mexicana (IPM), refused to build.

The subsidiary of Promotora y Operadora de Infraestructura (Pinfra) was the winner of the first tender carried out in Enrique Peña Nieto's six-year term, when the then API Veracruz (today Asipona) was awarded it on November 30, 2017. However, the company argued deficiencies in the sheet piling to build the dock and demanded that the contract be modified to operate containers with gantry cranes, which did not contemplate either the tender or the Port Development Master Program.

It was then that the now Asipona and IPM agreed to end the contract, of which a copy was requested via transparency, but it was classified as reserved for 5 years. However, the Plenary of Commissioners of the National Institute of Transparency, Access to Information and Protection of Personal Data (INAI) determined to modify the response, to which it paid for the change of officials in Asipona who classified the contract termination agreement.
