APM Terminals today signed a memorandum of understanding with Sahathai Terminal PLC (PORT) and Mitr Phol Sugar to develop a greenfield container terminal in Bangkok. Named Bangkok River Terminal Limited (BRT), the terminal is aimed at catering to the fast-growing containerized import and export trade of Thailand.

Earlier, in October 2018, Sahathai Terminal PLC (PORT), Thailand’s leading container terminal and logistics company had entered into a Joint Venture with Mitr Phol Sugar to develop this Container Terminal. APM Terminals’ participation in the project is expected to further strengthen the joint venture. Nevertheless, completion of the transaction will be subject to receiving applicable regulatory approvals and licenses.

Ms. Sauwakun Karuchit, CEO of Sahathai Terminal, explains, “In October 2018, PORT and Mitr Phol established a new company named Bangkok River Terminal Limited (BRT) to study the investment, and to apply for the BOI supporting scheme. We are glad to share that today we have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with APM Terminals, a part of A.P. Moller – Maersk – world’s leading integrated container logistics company, to be a partner in this project. BRT strongly believes that APM Terminals’ rich experience in leading and setting up world-class terminals globally will be crucial to this project’s success.”

“We are pleased to partner in the development of the Bangkok River Port Terminal and further look forward to working with Sahathai and Mitr Phol and operating the same. Once developed, we expect the terminal to play a critical role in lifting trade for Thailand. It will not only deliver higher reliability for Maersk customers, but also enable more efficient multi-modal transportation options for Thai shippers, thereby delivering ease of doing business and growing Thailand’s economy.” said Maarten Degryse, Managing Director, APM Terminals Inland Services, Thailand.

“Mitr Phol believes that the agreements we sign today will remake a significant shift for Thailand’s Logistics Industry, in response to the growth of Thailand’s container shipping business which increases around 6-7% annually. With expertise and strong commitment of all partners, we trust the project will be highly achieved,” said Verajet Vongkusolkit,
Chief of Executive Officer of Thai Sugar, Energy and New Business Group, Mitr Phol Group.
