In 2014, Chile's port of Angamos reported cargo handled amounting to 3.3mt (million tonnes), up 26% over 2013. Of particular note was 1.4mt of copper cathodes. Since Angamos started operations in 2003, it has handled a total of 40mt of copper cathodes thanks to the specialist installations it has at its terminal.

Last year, the port also saw the arrival the first self-tipping containers for use with dry bulk commodities. Minerals arrive from the mine to the warehouse in a totally sealed environment, with 80,000 tonnes of concentrate handled in the three months since this operation began.
