Unless the decision is not made to turn over the port partially or fully in concession to a private party to operate it, the first ships could be docking at the new and modern infrastructure in the short term.
In April 2013 an international tender process will be launched for the operation of the container terminal.
The Salvadoran government has announced the conditions to be fulfilled by companies who operate, under the form of concessions, at the new port.
According to private operators, shipping companies will continue using port Acajutla, so the new port would only generate losses for the Salvadoran state.
Facing closure of the Port of Acajutla for repairs, the Salvadoran government decided to start operations in La Unión Port.
