Sea Rescuers recieve donation from APM Terminals Maasvlakte II

APM Terminals exists to lift global trade and to provide our customers with exceptional service, in the safest and most reliable way possible. That’s why we have affinity with people who help people.

With 64 terminals around the world, many of them at busy ports and harbours, we have innate respect for the sea and for the seafarers whose role in the global supply chain can never be under-estimated.

Above everything, we strive to conduct our work safely, so that everyone we are in contact with gets home safe and well.

For all these reasons and more, we have deep admiration for the coastguards who risk their lives to save those in distress on the water.

At our state-of-the-art automated facility in Rotterdam, Maasvlakte II, they’re adding practical help to admiration and respect for life-saving, by donating 10,000 euro to an organisation that has saved countless lives in the Netherlands over its 200 years of existence.

The Koninklijke Nederlandse Redding Maatschappij (KNRM) – or Royal Netherlands Sea Rescue Institution (KNRM) – is run by volunteers who respond to more than 2,000 emergency calls a year, rescuing and helping more than 3,000 people. The donation by APM Terminals will help the organization continue its important work.

Igor van den Essen, APM Terminals’ Regional Managing Director, Africa and Europe said: “it is important to support initiatives that are in line with our own mission and values. Saving people, and preventing accidents at sea and in-shore waters is a cause that touches our hearts. I’m proud of our team at Maasvlakte II, and I’m proud that we are supporting such a worthwhile organization.”.
