Gemini Cooperation selects APMT hubs to enhance schedule reliability

The newly established Gemini Cooperation has selected eight APM Terminals (APMT) terminals as hubs to connect the network’s services.

The long-term operational collaboration between Maersk and Hapag-Lloyd will start in February 2025.

These hubs are expected to play a key role in delivering more than 90 per cent schedule reliability, competitive transit times, and far-reaching global coverage promised by Gemini.

The selected hubs, which will help connect the new network’s 58 services and more than 6,000 port-to-port combinations, include APMT Maasvlakte II in Rotterdam the Netherlands, North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven in Germany, APMT Algeciras in Spain, APMT Tangier and Medport Tangier in Morocco, Suez Canal Container Terminal in Port Said Egypt, Port of Salalah in Oman, and Port of Tanjung Pelepas in Malaysia.

To boost reliability and absorb unexpected disruption, the network will consist of mainline services between hubs, supported by dedicated shuttle services running between hubs and regional ports. 

Through investment in infrastructure and ongoing implementation of Lean methodologies, APMT has reportedly succeeded in cutting average port stay times by 15-20 per cent over the past two years and will continue to work to achieve further reductions.

“APMT is pleased to serve the Gemini Cooperation with a substantial part of our terminal portfolio,” said Lars Mikael Jensen, Head of Hubs and Collaboration, APMT.

“We excel in high productivity and reliability. This has earned us a position at the forefront of our industry and instills confidence in our ability to support Maersk and Hapag-Lloyd in delivering on their ambitions.”

In Marchy, APMT and Hateco Haiphong International Container Terminal (HHIT), a fully owned subsidiary of the Hateco Group, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to expand their partnership on terminal development in Haiphong, North Vietnam.
