Ocean Alliance Calls APM Terminals Port Elizabeth
Danny Gill

APM Terminals Port Elizabeth recently welcomed the 8,700 TEU capacity CMA CGM Bianca, marking the first call of the weekly Ocean Alliance US East Coast Loop 3 Service, providing direct service to the US East Coast from ports in China and Southeast Asia.

Until recently, container ships calling the Port of New York & New Jersey were mainly of the 5,000-8,000 TEU size class. The Port of NY/NJ is the second-busiest container port complex in North America after LA/Long Beach, with a combined annual throughput of 6.25 million TEUs in 2016. The current record for the largest vessel call at APM Terminals Port Elizabeth is 9,600 TEUs. Vessels of up to 14,000 TEU capacity, however, can now transit the widened Panama Canal locks, linking US East facilities such as APM Terminals Port Elizabeth with the Far East.

APM Terminals Port Elizabeth facility is now undergoing a $200 million infrastructure investment program to prepare for the increase in ultra-large container ships into the global fleet and the US trade lanes. As part of the infrastructure investment program, APM Terminals Port Elizabeth will be equipped with eight super Post-Panamax cranes and six Post-Panamax cranes with an 18-container wide reach, along with 24 inbound gates and 16 outbound gates to optimize truck traffic through the terminal.
