Hutchison buys AMPT Rotterdam

[ May 10, 2021   //   ]

Hutchison Ports Netherlands is to acquire APM Terminals Rotterdam (APMTR) from APMT.

APMTR is next to Hutchison Ports’ existing ECT Delta terminal in the Maasvlakte area of the port. It has 1,600 metres of deep-water quay serviced by 13 ship-to-shore gantry cranes.

Managing director of Hutchison Ports Europe Clemence Cheng, said: “We already handle the majority of containers in the port through ECT’s Delta and Euromax terminals. The addition of APMTR will further enhance our ability to offer a first class and flexible service to our customers.

“We will continue to serve Maersk Line’s existing business at the terminal and will work with the workforce to develop the customer and volume base to meet growing demand.  We have the opportunity to redevelop and enhance the facility in the future and look forward to continuing to grow our business in the port.”
