Improvement in container handling capacity of Algeciras and Tangier
By sharing the same office, coordinating yard and vessel planning among other things, the terminal has improved the container handling capacity of Algeciras – and nearby Tangier – by 20% and delivered more than USD 70 million in total savings to the Group. Similar arrangements in Rotterdam and Singapore have started as well.
In Europe’s largest port, Rotterdam, APM Terminals is using technology and experts in automation and industrial IT systems to push the boundaries of productivity and reach new safety levels. Maasvlakte II is the world’s first fully automated container terminal, with self-guided vehicles and remotely operated cranes – and no humans in the container yard.
