Terminales Portuarias del Pacífico (TPP), which operates the dry bulk terminal at the Mexican port of Lázaro Cárdenas, has established a new loading record, despatching 142,933 tonnes of iron ore in one week. The consignment was loaded into a Capesize vessel bound for China.

The previous record was 142,450 tonnes. However, the Mexican record for overall dry bulk shipments dates back to 2009, when a vessel discharged 142,190 tonnes of imported coal.
