In the first quarter of 2023, the Progreso High Port has mobilized a total of 1.3 million tons of products, primarily cargo such as cement, asphalt, stone, ballast, corn, and Brazilian soy, as reported by the Administration of the National Port System in Progreso (Asipona).

Among the cargo that arrived in Yucatan are boilers and generators for the Federal Electricity Commission for the new plants being built in Merida and Valladolid, according to the organization itself.

According to Asipona, on May 4th, they received the docking of boilers, which arrived on the JMC 2516 barge at Dock 4 of the port facility. The vessel brought 4 boilers for the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), originating from Altamira, Tamaulipas. A new delivery of equipment and materials for the state-owned company, totaling 800 tons, is expected on the 19th.

The Administration of the National Port System in Progreso (Asipona) celebrated its 29th anniversary of operations and has established itself as one of the most active points in the Gulf of Mexico area, accounting for 4.3 percent of the national cargo movement.

In the breakdown of operations for the month of May, the Progreso High Port will receive 34 ship dockings in the second half of the month at Docks 3, 4, 7, and 8, which are in operation. It is important to note that on April 25th, the agency reported an accident during the unloading maneuvers of the Rukai Benefit ship, which caused a hole in Dock 3 of the Progreso port due to overweight.

The report from the state-owned company detailed that the docks with the highest activity are numbered 7 and 8, where corn, wheat, Brazilian soy, and pig feed are unloaded, totaling nearly 190,000 tons in the second half of May. Additionally, Positions 3 and 4 are being used for the unloading of construction materials such as rails, cement, ballast, and asphalt, with a volume exceeding 310,000 tons of products.

Regarding container mobility, the agency reported a significant reduction of 8.7 percent in the handling of TEUs (containers) compared to 2022, with a total of 30,495. In the same month last year, 33,889 containers were handled, and in 2021, during the pandemic, there were 43,010 containers reported.

Asipona reported that no more cruises will be received in Progreso for the remainder of May. According to their reports, 2 vessels arrived in May. In this context, Progreso Port is the 7th national docking point, reporting a total of 186,114 passengers in the first quarter of 2023, an increase of 101.3 percent compared to 2022. Above Progreso, there are Cozumel, Majahual, Cabo San Lucas, Ensenada, Puerto Vallarta, and Mazatlan, all of which are locations on the Pacific Ocean coast.
