The operator of the container terminal may have already informed customers and shipping companies that on March 9th it will be ready to start receiving the first ships.
In late January the Port of Quetzal (EPQ) gave approval for APM Terminals to start operations at the Quetzal Container Terminal, and now the company could be preparing to start operations from March 9.

Elperiodico.com.gt reports that "... in a statement sent to its customers, Maersk Line, the parent company of APM Terminals, reported that it will be 'sending information about the operation of the terminal in order to clarify any doubts before operations start. According to this document sent by the shipping company, the first containers left ports on February 6 bound for the TCQ, which coincides with the date the Board of the EPQ approved for the reception of the first part of the work of the Terminal."

"... The Comptroller of the TCQ, Alexander Ainzenstatd said that they can not confirm that on March 9 TCQ will receive the first ship since they have not yet signed contracts with various shipping lines that are planning to disembark there."
