To improve efficiency, minimise customer waiting times, and improve truck turn times, APM Terminals Apapa can make it easier to retrieve the desired container from a stack, by providing dedicated stacks for containers destined for a large importer with high volumes, who agrees to aggregate their containers into a single stack.
For this service, often referred to as 'Peel Off', cargo is consolidated in the yard for specific customers (importers, freight forwarders, trucking companies) and available for pick up in one shift. Containers are distributed from top of stack on one truck to the next truck, until all cargo is delivered. This results in significant improvements in cargo pick-up time.
- Cargo can be delivered to warehouse in one shift
- Reduces truck waiting time.
- Easier and faster access to cargo.
