APMT’s Mammoth Pipavav-Crane Plan


In a bid to expand on capacity and improve on services, Gujarat Pipavav Port, operated by APM Terminals (APMT) has acquired three quay cranes, according to the Journal of Commerce.

The move is anticipated to help the port handle falling volumes and increase productivity.

Keld Pedersen, Managing Director of APMT Pipavav, said: “This is in line with our business expansion plan of increasing the capacity to 1.35 million 20-foot-equivalent units (annually). We wish to continue to be prepared for growth and work closely with our customers in the export-import trade.”

Pipavav Port previously announced that it intends to spend US$100 million over the next two years to increase its handling capacity by more than 50%.

APMT’s most recent venture includes the multi-purpose Qingdao terminal in China, which is being used to cater for the rising demand of grain and other general cargo.

It has been a busy year for APMT, of special note was the opening of its Maasvlakte II terminal at the Port of Rotterdam.
