25-year concession for APM Terminals in Monrovia, Liberia

25-year concession for APM Terminals in Monrovia, Liberia

As the current facility was developed prior to containerised cargo transportation and requires investment in equipment and technology, the Liberian government elected to privatise the port in response to the urgent need to bring the facility up to current industry standards

Most of APM Terminals’ investment will in the initial years be to construct the quay, establish efficient yard handling procedures and install the new equipment required to transform the port into a more competitive, world-class facility capable of handling modern, deep-draft vessels.

“This will be the first 100% APM Terminals-owned terminal in Africa, which is a big milestone for us,” said Hans-Ole Madsen, vice president for Business Development for Africa, Middle East and the Indian Subcontinent.
