Net Zero by 2030

APM Terminals has made an industry-leading global commitment to be fully net zero by 2040 across all of its terminals. At APM Terminals Los Angeles Pier 400 the bar has been set even higher. As one of the most environmentally advanced marine terminals in San Pedro Bay we have ambitions to be the most environmentally responsible and sustainable container terminal operator on the U.S. West Coast by the end of 2024.

The terminal is on track to achieve net zero emissions ahead of the 2030 Port of Los Angeles deadline, established in the Clean Air Action Plan. In doing so we’ll also ensure a healthier and safer environment for employees and the local community living close to the port. Our achievements will also help our customers meet their sustainability targets, and save them time and money, with the most competitive service at the port, transparency in our systems and visibility and accuracy on their cargo.

ryan-lansden-200As a local resident of Long Beach, decarbonization efforts at APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles are very close to my heart. Improved air quality will have a tangible influence on the health of my family. And the terminal’s reduction in greenhouse gas emissions will make an important contribution to limiting the impacts of climate change, which is vital for the future of my children and their children to come.

Industry Partner for Decarbonization

Based on researched commissioned by APM Terminals a white paper was published that concludes that battery electric container handling equipment (CHE) can help drive net zero ports within this decade. But despite being one of the world’s largest terminal operating companies, we cannot do this alone. Rather we have mobilised efforts across the whole industry to accelerate the adoption of battery-electric CHE.

In 2023, APM Terminals established The Zero Emission Port Alliance (ZEPA) - an industry-wide strategic coalition with the goal of accelerating the journey to zero emissions for container handling equipment (CHE) on ports. Based on research from the recent whitepaper developed jointly by APM Terminals and DP World, the alliance is working to increase industry wide-adoption of battery-electric container handling equipment by making it more affordable, attractive and accessible. This will be achieved through:

  • Driving scaled up production capacity and shorter lead times of battery electric CHE by manufacturers & reduce product costs
  • Bringing down the cost of batteries and charging solutions and simplify implementation through standardization
  • Facilitate cost-efficient roll-out of power infrastructure for battery electric CHE, shore power and other cargo segments
  • Creating better market conditions and help accelerate the adoption of untethered battery electric CHE


How will Pier 400 achieve Net Zero by 2030 in Los Angeles?

We will achieve our target whilst continuing to develop competitive and reliable solutions with high business and low environmental impact, anticipating our customers’ challenges of today, meeting their needs of tomorrow whilst fostering a sustainable future for all.

To decarbonise our operations we need to reduce emissions by reducing truck idling times and o improving energy efficiency, replace fossil-fuel driven equipment with battery electric and hybrid equipment running on bio-fuels, and decarbonise our grid through the use of renewable energy.

We continuously optimise our operations and do more with less through the adoption of Lean principles. Greater efficiency leads to, among other things, cost savings, reduced time in port for vessels, which is one of the ways we can help our shipping-line customers reduce emissions.
