APMT invests in Nigeria

[ December 17, 2021   //   ]

APM Terminals has invested US$438 million to upgrade its facility in Apapa, Nigeria’s largest container hub. The investment is the highest of any port terminal operator in the country. It has acquired mobile harbour cranes, rubber tyred gantry cranes, reach stackers, forklifts, terminal trucks, empty handlers and invested in yard improvements.

It is also focusing on investing in facilities: renovating buildings, upgrading in-gate and out-gate facilities and terminal fencing and lighting. APMT has also equipped the parking area access with a facial recognition system and expanded its terminal fleet with new shuttle buses and pickup trucks. The terminal is adopting global best practices for digitalized products, such as advanced online container tracking and monitoring, container email notifications and online billing and payments.
