APM Terminals Extends Concession with Port of Kalundborg, Enhancing Services and Ensuring Operations until 2033
APM Terminals has recently reached an agreement with the Port of Kalundborg to extend the concession of the Kalundborg container terminal by 10 years, ensuring its operation until 2033. With this agreement, APM Terminals aims to provide enhanced services while focusing on sustainability and operational efficiency.
Expansion of Services
As part of the agreement, APM Terminals will assume responsibility for all crane operations at the facility, streamlining operations ensuring smoother and more efficient handling of cargo, as well as introducing food and veterinary control as new customer services.
“We will continue to invest to leverage our global capabilities locally in Kalundborg. With Kalundborg, we see an opportunity to provide customers with an exceptional service and an efficient, greener, and competitive product in a strong location, which is well connected, accessible, and closer to industry and customers of the port”, said Mikael Gutman, Managing Director Nordic, APM Terminals.
Strategic location and connectivity
The Port of Kalundborg is strategically located on the deep-sea route in the Great Belt, connecting the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. Its proximity to Copenhagen provides easy access to major markets. The port's advantageous location also allows for approximately 12-hour shorter steam times by sea, making it an attractive choice for businesses seeking efficient and sustainable logistics.
Rapid development and investments
Since APM Terminals started operating the terminal in March 2021, the Port of Kalundborg has experienced rapid development and investment. The 50,000 square meter area in Ny Vesthavn has a water depth of 15 meters and the necessary infrastructure to facilitate APM Terminal's operations. This development highlights the commitment and progress being made to establish and expand the port's capacity.
