APM Terminals’ USD800m MedPort Tangier transshipment terminal in Morocco has opened with an annual capacity of 5m teus and will support Tanger Med Port to increase its annual throughput capacity to 9m teus.

Part of the Tanger Med Port complex, the new transshipment terminal has been designed and constructed by APM Terminals and will also be operated by the company. It took two years to build and is APM Terminals’ second terminal in Morocco.

Morten H. Engelstoft, chief executive officer of APM Terminals, commented: “APM Terminals has a long-term relationship with Morocco and we are proud to be operating the second container terminal in the Tanger Med Port complex. APM Terminals MedPort Tangier is a key junction in our global network allowing us to serve our customers better and further facilitate global trade.”

With a quay length of 1,200m and a draft of 16-18m, MedPort Tangier can facilitate the largest vessels.

Morocco has seen GDP growth of 4.1% and has a positive outlook for containerised imports and exports with significant growth expected in the years to come.

Approximately 200 cargo vessels pass through the Strait of Gibraltar daily, with major liner services linking Asia, Europe, the Americas and Africa.
