Monrovia - 24 hour access now available

APM Terminals has reported that a new port navigation system installed at the Monrovia Free Port will enable 24-hour port access to the port for the first time in three decades

The President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, officially inaugurated a new port navigation system installed at the Monrovia Free Port.

APM Terminals began operations at Monrovia in February 2011 under a 25-year concession agreement for the privatisation of the port concluded in 2010. Up to now, says the company, the absence of buoys, lighting and electronic navigation systems limited port access to daylight hours only. The new equipment includes 12 off-shore buoys and two land-based range markers, which were installed at a cost of around US$0.5M.

“The return to 24-hour accessibility to the port is a major milestone in the development of the Liberian economy as a global trading partner, and increases our ability to serve the people and businesses of Liberia, and the region,” stated APMT Liberia Managing Director, George Adjei.

Around 350 vessels call Monrovia annually and APMT Liberia handles some 95% of the country’s trade. This includes 0.8 Mtpa of breakbulk general cargo as well as containerised trade. Container throughput was 98,000 TEU in 2015.

  • APM Terminals Inland Services, South Asia has signed an exclusive agreement with Volvo Cars including a dedicated warehouse facility in Chennai for fully-assembled automobiles imported from Sweden. The 102,000 ft2 warehouse, with a capacity for 500 cars, will include bonded and non-bonded storage. Volvo Cars, a subsidiary of the Chinese-based Zhejiang Geely Holding Group since 2010, has seen Indian car sales grow rapidly in the past three years. India is now the world’s fifth largest passenger car market, after China, the USA, Japan and Germany. India’s around 2.7M new cars sold in in 2015, reflecting an increase of 7% over 2014.
