APM Terminals places great importance on terminal and cargo security to reduce risks and address threats to the global supply chain.

Worldwide, our security team works closely with global law enforcement agencies to continuously improve supply chain security. We cooperate with U.S., European Union and other national agencies, customers, suppliers and local port authorities to apply a global, multi-layered risk-based approach to security.

By implementing global security management standards and processes, use of advanced security technologies, compliance auditing, respecting our company’s Code of Conduct and living our company’s values, we enable a robust security environment for our people, our operations and our customers at APM Terminals and facilities globally.

In addition, we ensure compliance with global regulatory security certifications, such as the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS) and the Custom-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT). We are also committed to global security initiatives, such as Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) and the Container Security Initiative (CSI), raising the standard in safeguarding the operating environment at our terminals and facilities globally.
