New equipment for Aqaba

[ September 24, 2021   //   ]

APMT’s Aqaba Container Terminal (ACT) in Jordan has received new equipment including four empty container handlers and one reach stacker. The new machines have been customised to meet ACT’s unique requirements and specifications, and feature state-of-the-art technological innovations, including spacious, modern operator cabs that offer exceptional visibility in all directions.

They are part of a five-year equipment replacement plan, which aims to replace the terminal’s older machinery with newer, more advanced machines to reduce operational costs and enhance service. Over the past 10 years, ACT has invested more than US$300 million in enhancing the terminal’s operational capacity and efficiency.
