Nicaragua's main port, Corinto, has announced that it is to build a new dry bulk terminal with a capacity of 65,000 tonnes. The port already has a multipurpose terminal, a container terminal, a liquid bulk terminal and dedicated to banana traffic.

Shiploaders will be deployed at the new facility, eliminating the need to use big bags, which will make it faster to load consignments and also cheaper. Currently, Corinto handles just 1,815 tonnes of dry bulk, but this is expected to increase exponentially once the terminal becomes operational.
