Our Terminal

APM Terminals Mobile is a 115-acre, deep-sea container terminal at the Port of Mobile. The state-of-the-art container terminal is adjacent to an intermodal rail facility that provides direct and efficient transfer of containers between vessel and rail.

Operating since 2008, APM Terminals Mobile offers an improved option in the US Gulf for reaching Midwest markets as well as Alabama and neighbouring states.

The intermodal rail terminal includes two operating tracks, a loop track, and 914m car repair track. It is accessible by five Class I railroads, including the Canadian National, CSX, Norfolk Southern, Kansas City Southern and BNSF. Currently, the Canadian National provides container intermodal rail service to key U.S. mid-west and Canadian markets.

With a draft of 13.7m, a turning basin to accommodate vessels of up to 1,300 feet in length, and equipped with Super Post Panamax Ship to Shore Cranes with a maximum reach of 22 container rows, the terminal can handle vessels up to 14,000 TEU capacity. This meets the new “Panamax” limit of the expanded Panama Canal locks.

The terminal has expansion capacity to handle more than 1.3 million TEUs annually (currently 650,000 TEU).

Growth

Auto parts are the terminal’s largest import at present. Over 1.5 million cars and trucks are produced annually at factories within four hours of the terminal, which is served by an Intermodal Container Transfer Facility, providing easy access to inland points.

In 2018, a $135 million Walmart international distribution center opened 15 miles from the terminal. The Irvington, Alabama facility will handle Walmart’s import cargoes destined for Walmart’s Regional Distribution Centers in the American South. This represents new annual container traffic of an estimated 50,000 TEUs annually through the Port of Mobile.

Mobile is also the point of entry for Airbus passenger plane components which are moved to the USD $600 million Airbus factory and assembly facility at the nearby Brookley Aeroplex, representing another major business making site selections close to the Port of Mobile.
