“We have a very significant appetite for growth in North-, South-, and Central America,” says Eric Sisco, President of APM Terminals Americas Region, when asked how the company will grow regionally. This is far from just a vague desire to grow, which becomes apparent when he starts listing new projects.
APM Terminals has recently secured concessions in Costa Rica, where the company will build and operate the world’s largest reefer facility. In addition to this, APM Terminals has entered into a partnership with MSC’s terminal operating division to develop and operate a terminal in Santos, Brazil, which will become the biggest terminal in Santos, already the biggest in South America.
