Wie zijn wij
APM Terminals Maasvlakte II is the brand-new terminal on Maasvlakte II. The terminal has been operational since April 2015 and has a clear aim: to offer a safe and an immaculate connection between land and sea, a connection through which millions of containers pass annually. We achieve this aim by pulling out all the stops, every single day. This means we are putting to use all the knowledge, expertise, talent and experience of our people and using the most advanced technology. For instance, the ten SQCs on the deep sea quay (which is 20 metres deep and 1,000 metres long) are operated from a control room and the AGVs run on electricity, not diesel. In short, APM Terminals Maasvlakte II is one of the most advanced terminals in the world.
