Our Terminal

APM Terminals Algeciras is one of the largest terminals in the Western Mediterranean, and a natural transhipment hub for cargoes to and from Africa, Europe and the Far East. It is equipped to serve Ultra-Large Container Ships over 20,000 TEU and has an impressive track record of safety, efficiency and productivity.

APM Terminals Algeciras is located in the Strait of Gibraltar, the main East/West shipping route through the Mediterranean Sea, and provides a natural transhipment location for cargoes moving on vessels passing through the Strait of Gibraltar on major liner services linking Asia, Europe, the Americas and Africa, with 19 quay cranes delivering the best performance on Ultra-Large Container Ships. Approximately 7% of the volume is dedicated to import/Export operations.
