APM Terminals Valencia secures €3.6 million investment to boost efficiency

With its €3.6 million ($3.9 million) investment, APM Terminals (APMT) Valencia has planned to expand capacity, increase equipment efficiency and improve the flow of trucks entering its terminal.

According to APMT, its 11 new Terberg YT223 terminal tractors are equipped with Cummins Stage 5 engines, which comply with current European Union emissions regulations.

The new tractors are part of a more extensive investment plan for APMT Valencia, which also includes the upcoming commissioning of four Rubber-Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes, with a 50-tonne lifting capacity.

The RTGs arrived from Castellón, where reachstackers are preferred for yard management due to technical and safety requirements.

After the transfer by sea, components including GPS, a self-aligning system, and collision prevention have been renewed before commissioning.

APMT Valencia has also commenced works on new gates for trucks, which are slated to increase the number of access lanes to the terminal from five to six.

Equipped with Optical Character Recognition and License Plate Recognition, they will be able to automatically read container and truck details.

Built-in weighing platforms will be able to calculate the container weight (VGM) and transfer this to the Terminal Operating System.

Recently, APM Terminals reached an agreement with the Port of Kalundborg in Denmark to extend the concession of Kalundborg container terminal to 2033.
