Equipment lifecycle management

Equipment maintenance and replacement is a complex decision-making process. Choosing an effective strategy for each piece of equipment involves a trade-off between reliability and cost, while ensuring the safety of your operations.

APM Terminals uses support models to evaluate equipment lifecycle strategies to effectively manage total ownership costs and risks for a vessel’s operating equipment. But of course, models are only as good as the information provided. Our highly trained technicians can be relied upon to provide accurate and useful input, for determining when maintenance or replacement is most cost effective.
