APM Terminals prepares for 22,000 TEU ships

APM Terminals is researching which kind of terminal changes is needed for a ship with a capacity of 4,000 TEU more than the upcoming triple-E ships.

The increase in vessel size places new demands on terminal infrastructure. That is why APM Terminals is already preparing itself for the reception of vessels with a capacity of 22,000 TEU (twenty feet containers) which are still not in existence and which are going to be considerably larger than the 18,000 TEU than the coming Maersk Line triple-E ships are going to load.

“The point is that ultra-large vessels are already in service, and even larger vessels will follow, and so the time to prepare the necessary terminal and quay infrastructure is now,” says Halfdan Ross.
