Partnership between APM Terminals and Toyota expands to Valencia

toyota-lashingGibraltar Stockholdings (TGS), a specialist distributor of Toyota vehicles and spare parts for humanitarian agencies worldwide, has extended its business with APM Terminals to ensure the safe and just-in-time arrival of Toyota vehicles at their destination. This is an expansion of the service provided by Maersk, and the result of experience at APM Terminals Algeciras, where the team has stuffed containers and loaded an average of 3,000 cars a year since 2004.

At the terminal, experts load and secure each vehicle in 20 or 40-foot containers. By doing so, they will be loaded onto container ships and require only limited infrastructure at the destination during unloading. In this way, Maersk, together with APM Terminals, ensures that TGS Toyota vehicles arrive where they are needed without a scratch and ready to facilitate the work of humanitarian organisations.

Following the success of the experience, APM Terminals is exploring opportunities to further expand these capabilities across its network so that even more vehicles can reach their end users in the most remote corners of the world quickly and safely. APM Terminals Valencia was the latest terminal to join the service, and since December has been loading vehicles that do not require pitting for equipment modifications.
