APM Terminals operates a global port and terminal network of 62 facilities with 25,000 employees in 68 countries. The company provides port management and terminal operations to over 60 liner shipping, logistics and port operators, performing a central role in world trade and logistics.

APM Terminals’ commitment to meeting the evolving demands of the international trade community and the shipping industry, joins the attention to conducting business throughout the world only at the highest of ethical, environmental and socially responsible standards.

The new Vado Ligure container terminal, that APM Terminals will realize by the end of 2019, will integrate the company’s port network in the Med Sea, currently consisting of the terminals located in the ports of Gioia Tauro, Port Said, Tangiers (transhipment) and Algeciras (transhipment and Iberian regional market).

The terminal is aimed at large global shipping companies operating in the Med Sea with big vessels of 13/14,000 TEU or more and will serve the import/export trade between Middle East/India/Far East and the internal market of the region that stretches from northern Italy to Switzerland and Bavaria.

Intermodality will be encouraged: as for inland forwarding, the goal is to move up to 40% of the total traffic via rail, transferring the boxes to an intermodal terminal in the hinterland, from where they will then be shipped to their destination.

The terminal in Vado has several advantages over Ligurian/ Tyrrhenian range competitors:

  • the efficient connection to Northern Italy’s transport network, with a direct slip road to the new dedicated motorway gate and traffic-free railway lines from Savona to Turin and Alessandria, perfectly fitting freight transport needs
  • the ability to accommodate the large ships sailing on the Far East/Europe routes, thanks to the natural deep waters (over 15 m), the absence of limits to crane dimension and the easy nautical access
  • the fast container cycle, thanks to the terminal’s operating system (semi-automated yard cranes) and the “one stop shop” customs services
  • the availability of logistics services at the back of the port, allowing to enhance value proposition to customers, offering a complete and cost-effective range of solutions
  • the high environmental efficiency, through the use of low-impact technologies provided by the Environmental Development Program adopted by APM Terminals
