Timber log exports resume via APM Terminals Liberia

Facilitating the export of timber logs has actively resumed at APM Terminals Liberia. This month, a delegation from the Government of Liberia and the diplomatic community witnessed first-hand the Ports expertise in handling complex cargo in a safe and efficient manner. 
Since June 2022, APM Terminals Liberia has processed more than 15,000 cubic metres of logs for export. This shipment of 6,500 cubic metres of logs observed by the delegation brough the total volume of logs handled at the Port since June to around 22,000 cubic metres.
General Cargo Business Partner at APM Terminals Liberia, Mr. Christian B. Freeman, emphasized that the opportunity to handle logs at the Terminal is an economic opportunity for Liberia. At the same time the terminal helps ensure that all lawful revenues due to the government are received by the government.
The resumption of timber export at the Freeport of Monrovia, generates revenue for government, but also brings relief to logging customers trucking from the western parts of the country (Gbarpolu, Lofa, Bomi) who can now easily access the Freeport of Monrovia for business instead of trucking their logs to Buchanan, Sinoe and other more distant Ports.
