The Autonomous Executive Port Commission (CEPA) informed the population about the monitoring of the supply of goods despite the continuing emergency of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The port authorities reported the mobilization of 128,358 metric tons of imports and exports in the period from January 1 to January 9 in the Port of Acajutla.

The Port of Acajutla has assumed a strategic role in the current COVID-19 emergency, to guarantee the uninterrupted transportation of food for the salvadoran population; and also plays an important role in the economic reactivation of the country.

In addition, the autonomous region reported that it has attended to 13 ships and mobilized 2,617 containers. Part of these ships and containers mobilize the food that is used to deliver the food packages that are part of the Emergency Health Program (PES), which seeks to contribute to the food sovereignty and economy of the families affected by the pandemic.

The institution performs all logistic services under the implementation of strict biosecurity protocols to protect the health of all users, and collaborators.
