APM Terminals Quetzal and Grupo Maersk companies contribute to Guatemala

Guatemala City, August 12, 2020.- APM Terminals Quetzal, the port division of Grupo Maersk in Guatemala, together with Maersk Line, Hamburg Süd and Sealand, companies that are part of the same group, made a donation of $ 70,000.00 in medical supplies essential to the Government of Guatemala that are part of a donation package equivalent to $ 250,000.00 to continue supporting the COVID-19 health emergency in the country.

The contribution is made up of 11,500 surgical masks, 9,500 pairs of sterilized gloves and 5,000 safety glasses, which are important elements for the work carried out by health personnel during the current pandemic.

“APMT is present in 64 countries with different needs in the midst of the unfortunate situation caused by the COVID 19 virus and in this case, we have joined forces between Grupo Maersk and APM Terminals Quetzal to support Guatemala in meeting one of the main needs required by health authorities to face the health situation and ensure the well-being of the Guatemalan population. At this time, solidarity and the common good must prevail for the country to move forward from this situation”, said Gabriel Corrales, General Director of APM Terminals Quetzal.

APM Terminals Quetzal, as a temporary customs warehouse and port terminal in Guatemala, has continued to operate on a regular basis for the correct supply of containerized cargo in and out of cargo in order to keep the country supplied, mainly in this health crisis without precedents, following the recommendations established by national authorities and by the World Health Organization (WHO).
