APMT Mobile welcomes largest containership to call US Gulf

APMT Mobile

APM Terminals Mobile (APMT Mobile) has hosted the largest vessel to ever call the US Gulf as it looks forward to terminal expansion.

The mega vessel reaches a total capacity of 11,356 TEU.

APMT Mobile is further enhancing its handling capacity by adding 32 acres to its current terminal and accommodate up to 1 million TEU and 14,000 TEU ships.

The deal has been signed in agreement with the Alabama State Port Authority (ASPA) and represents the third expansion in the last six years – as importers expand their volumes to meet regional consumer demand and tap into the rail service to the Midwest US market.

Container volumes at the Port of Mobile saw a 6 per cent dip in May 2022, only handling 43,865 TEU.

The port has pinned the decline on the volatility of Trans-Pacific trade, directly associated with recent lockdowns in China.
