APMTerminals MedPort Tangier, in Morocco, is kicking off its phase-2 of development that will add an extra capacity of 1m teu.

During phase 1, the terminal operated with a 1,200 metre-long quay and in its Phase-Two, it will add an additional 400 metres, increasing the total quay length to 1,600 metres. This will add an additional throughput capacity of 1m containers to reach the previously announced overall capacity of 5m teu.

 APMT MedPort Tangier began operation in 2019 following a total investment of $800m and handled more than 2.2m teu in 2020

APM Terminals MedPort Tangier is the second transhipment terminal established by APM Terminals in the Tangier Med port complex, next to APM Terminals Tangier, which started operations in 2007. This new investment is an important milestone in both Morocco and Maersk's long-term partnership and confirms its commitment to establishing a major transhipment hub in the Mediterranean.
