APM Terminals increases Port Elizabeth investment plans to USD $200 million

[ March 8, 2017   //   ]

In preparation for ultra large container ships, APM Terminals increased its Port Elizabeth investment plans to USD $200 million. The investment includes four ship-to-shore cranes that will be capable of handling ultra-large container ships, an expanded gate complex, upgrades to container-handling equipment and other operational improvements.

“We are connecting people, lifting global trade and addressing liner trends to make the port even better for the future,” said Wim Lagaay, President, of APM Terminals North America. “Our goal is to make APM Terminals Port Elizabeth safer, easier to use and faster for our trucker community, more productive for our shipping line clients and more reliable for our clients’ supply chains expectations.”

The operational and infrastructure improvements are designed to keep APM Terminals Port Elizabeth at the forefront of the New York/New Jersey harbor by being the container terminal of choice to work with by our many clients and partners. The terminal enhancements would not be possible without the essential work the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey has done to deepen the harbor and heighten the Bayonne Bridge to ensure future success and growth of the port.
