APM Terminals Leads Productivity Rankings Again

The JOC Group’s latest study of port productivity data, covering the year 2013, retains APM Terminals Yokohama as the world’s leading container terminal in productivity with 163 container moves per vessel hour (MPH).

Eleven facilities in the APM Terminals Global Terminal Network were cited, including APM Terminals Port Elizabeth, and APM Terminals Los Angeles, which were named the first and second most productive terminals in the JOC’s Americas grouping, with 104 and 96
MPH, respectively.
 
“We’re very proud of the team effort which produced these results for our customers,” said Jeff De Best, APM Terminals Chief Operating Officer. “Our approach is very simple: constant dialogue with our customers, intense pre-planning and then process discipline when the vessel is alongside. The goal is to make an APM Terminals port call like a Formula 1 pit stop. A well-planned, precisely executed event.”
 
APM Terminals Yokohama’s 2013 productivity performance reflected an 8.7% improvement over last year’s industry-leading 150 MPH, while APM Terminals Port Elizabeth, at the Port of New York and New Jersey, realized a 27% increase in productivity from 82 MPH, moving up from second place in last year’s JOC Americas regional rankings.
 
Five facilities in which APM Terminals has interests were cited among the world’s 11 most productive container terminals, which in addition to APM Terminals Yokohama, which tied with Tianjin Xingang Sinor Terminal for first place, included Tianjin Port Eurasia International Container Terminal (TECT) in third place at 139 MPH; Qingdao Qianwan Container Terminal (QQCT) and Xiamen Songyu Container Terminal (XSCT), tied for fourth place with 132 MPH; and Tianjin Port Alliance International Container Terminal (TACT) in seventh place with 126 MPH.
 
APM Terminals Houston, with 2013 productivity of 83 MPH, ranked eighth in the JOC’s Americas region, bringing to three the number of APM Terminals facilities listed among the Americas’ 10 leading terminals. The APM Terminals portfolio also placed three facilities in the JOC’s Europe, Africa and Middle East Region, with APM Terminals Rotterdam ranking third with 99 MPH, representing a 7.6% increase in productivity over 2012; the Port of Salalah, ranking sixth with 91 MPH, delivered a 26% increase over the year prior; and NTB North Sea Terminal Bremerhaven, ranking seventh, with 90 MPH.
 
The Port of Salalah, located in Oman on the Arabian Sea, and in which APM Terminals holds a 30% share, also ranked third in overall port productivity in the study’s Europe, Middle East and Africa region, with 72 MPH, and tied for eighth place worldwide with the Port of Mawan, China, in productivity while working vessels with less than 8,000 TEU capacity, with 88 MPH, representing a 26% improvement in this category over 2012.
 
The JOC study used data from over 150,000 port calls during 2013, evaluating the individual performances of 443 ports and 771 terminals. According to the JOC, “Gross moves per hour for a single vessel call is defined as the total container moves (onload, offload and repositioning) divided by the number of hours for which the vessel is at berth.”
