APM Terminals extends concession at Kalundborg container terminal

APM Terminals (APMT) has reached an agreement with the Port of Kalundborg in Denmark to extend the concession of Kalundborg container terminal to 2033.

Kalundborg Port has a strategic location next to the deep-sea route in the Great Belt, linking the Baltic Sea and the North Sea and provides an optimal sea connectivity between Kalundborg and key central markets.

In Kalundborg, APMT will ramp up its presence by assuming responsibility of all facility crane operations.

Furthermore, APMT said it will introduce food and veterinary control as new customer services following investments made by the Port of Kalundborg.

 “We will continue to leverage our global capabilities locally in Kalundborg. With Kalundborg, we see an opportunity to provide customers with an exceptional service and an efficient, greener, and competitive product in a strong location, which is well connected, accessible, and closer to industry and customers of the port,” said Mikael Gutman, Managing Director Nordic, APMT.

Kalundborg is a port undergoing rapid development and investments. APMT started its operations in Kalundborg in March 2021, receiving its first vessel call. The 50.000-square-metre area located in Ny Vesthavn (New West Harbour) was designated by the Port of Kalundborg with a water depth of 15 metres and fully paved with the required infrastructure for APMT to start its operations.
