28 Sep ALB increases capacity Alverca Terminal – Exclusive for reefers
The ALB assured this month the operation of another container terminal, this time in Alverca.
With an area of 14,000 m2 and a capacity to park close to 2,000 TEU’s, the new ALB park will be dedicated exclusively to the storage and parking of reefers containers.
According to Lourenço Silva, CEO of ALB, “The specialization in reefers containers is a necessity that the market has long desired. So we decided to invest in a park dedicated to this type of containers, with capacity for parking, assistance, maintenance and inspection.”
Lourenço Silva assures that “the partnership with Reconfrio – a company specialized in certified industrial refrigeration – is an added value and guarantees the service that will be provided.”
This park in Alverca will have, at an initial stage, two containers handling equipment, electricity supply, capacity for 40 PTI’s (Pre Trip Inspection) simultaneously and will have specialized technical assistance to refrigerated containers, not only inside the park but also outside either in port terminals, second-tier parks or others.
The opening is scheduled for October 3 and will be open from 08:00 a.m. to 08:00 p.m., with break for lunch time (12:00 p.m. to 13:00 p.m.).
