Our Company

APM Terminals operates one of the world’s most comprehensive port networks. We’re uniquely positioned to help both shipping line and landside customers grow their business. Through our global roll-out of real-time digital tools such as Track & Trace and Container Status NotificationsAPIs, and Terminal Alerts we're supporting our customers to improve supply chain efficiency, flexibility and dependability.

20th-anniversary-logoOur team of more than 22,000 industry professionals is focused on delivering the operational excellence and solutions, which our 10,000 customers require to reach their potential. The 76 terminals in our global network are operated exclusively by APM Terminals or together with a joint venture partner. In 2020 we moved 35.1m TEU - 36% more than in 2016 (total portfolio including hubs).

Customer Satisfaction

Between 2017 and 2020, our Net Promotor Score - how we measure customer satisfaction - showed a positive trend for both landside and shipping line customers, rising to +20 and +26 respectively. According to Bain & Co, the source of the NPS system, this lies in the favourable range. Despite the challenges facing the logistics industry in 2021, our NPS scores have remained stable.

As part of A.P.Moller-Maersk, we leverage more than a century of industry experience to design and build high-quality container terminals, and provide port and inland services for cargo handling and transportation between port facilities and inland locations. In 2019, revenues for our Terminals grew by more than 4% to USD 3.2 billion. Terminals in Moin, CostaRica, Tema, Ghana, and Vado, Italy, went into operation in 2019.

We invested USD 438m in our Terminals, with the largest investments being a terminal modernisation project in Los Angeles, USA, and equipment replacements. During 2020, investments continued with the development of our new Côte d’Ivoire Terminal (CIT) in Côte d'Ivoire, the expansion of APM Terminals Yokohama in Japan, equipment upgrades at our Russian terminals, the phase two development of APM Terminals Vado Ligure and our new terminal in Kalundborg, Denmark which opened in March 2021.
