The Chilean port of Angamos has handled 11mt (million tonnes) of copper since it first opened, making it the country’s premier export facility. In 2012, it handled 1.4mt, which represents about 60% of the output from the Antofagasta region.

In total, it has a copper stockpile area of 7 ha, which allows it to handle up to 116,000 tonnes of the mineral at any one time. It also has in place a traceability system, which is handled by a Wi-Fi network in the stockpile area.This allows each client to know what stock they are currently holding in the port, with updates given daily.
