APM Terminals sets operational record

APM Terminals ha set a new North American operations record this month with 27,846 TEUs handled on one vessel. This represents a complete discharge of the vessel for import cargo and a complete new load of export containers.

“Our terminal operations team works closely with our customers to optimize their peak season needs to ensure the port productivity and yard, rail and gate capacity meet and exceed customer expectations", says Steven Trombley, APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles Managing Director.

The 15,500 TEU, E-class, Eleonora Maersk vessel normally sails in the Asia/Europe service, however in response to strong North American market container volumes and the understanding that APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles has proven extra-large ship capabilities Maersk decided to deploy her and her sister, Eugen Maersk into the Transpacific TP-6 string.

The new record breaks the previous record of container handling at APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles which was on the Maersk Evora at 24,846 TEUs in October 2017.

APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles is one of the few container terminals in the Port of Los Angeles/Long Beach complex who has the crane height capable of handling the newest generation of ultra large container ships that use 10 high (containers) above deck stowage.

The terminal also has the largest number of tall cranes - and cranes able to reach 22 containers across the beam to handle the operational size demands of the newest ships – which is an important choice for vessel schedules and supply chain management routing choices.

At 484 acres, APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles is the largest single proprietary terminal in the world, featuring an ondock railyard that keeps thousands of trucks off nearby roads and reduces diesel emissions.
