APM Terminals launches new facility in Kalundborg, Denmark
APM Terminals and A.P. Moller-Maersk have entered into an agreement for shifting the latter’s feeder volumes from Copenhagen to a new APM-operated facility in the Port of Kalundborg.
Under the agreement, Kalundborg will receive two weekly feeder services with rotation Bremerhaven (Germany), Hallstahammer (Sweden), Helsingborg (Sweden), Kalundborg (Denmark), Aarhus (Denmark), Fredericia (Denmark) and back to Bremerhaven, which represents approximately 30 per cent of the volumes of the island of Zealand in Denmark.
With the new connection, Kalundborg will be added to global supply chain routes by gaining a link with Aarhus and therefore Maersk’s AE5 service, which connects Aarhus and North Europe ports with Asia.
APM Terminals has agreed with the Port of Kalundborg to establish terminal operations in the area Ny Vesthavn effective March 2021. The new area has been designated by the Port of Kalundborg with a water depth of 15 metres and fully paved with the required infrastructure to start operations.
