APM Terminals Today

APM Terminals operations began in 1958 with a general cargo facility at the Port of New York. In 1966, its very first international container operations launched with the loading of 236 containers onto the Sea-Land Fairland at Port Elizabeth, USA bound for Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Both of these landmarks occurred under the Maersk brand. On 25 June, 2001, a separate entity, APM Terminals was created, to drive the company's terminal business forward. 

20 year's later and the company's global network consists of 75 terminals, with several more under construction. Below, some of our employees talk about the APM Terminals of today, what the company represents, how it excels and what it means to them personally.
