Spotlight on APM Terminals Vado

Paolo Cornetto, Managing Director of APM Terminals Vado, Italy, addressed the 5th MedPorts 2017 conference last week in Barcelona by highlighting the future role of the deepwater APM Terminals Vado facility, now under construction, as a new southern gateway to Central Europe.

We designed our new port around liner customers – and our landside customers – the importers, exporters and truckers – to help them do more business by tapping into the 70 million-member consumer market of northern Italy, southern Germany, Switzerland, Austria and eastern France within an eight hour proximity of our port,” said Cornetto. 

“We will offer a natural deepwater port with 16 meter depth to ensure the largest Asia/Europe strings call easily with a modest deviation in their sailing route. And, we are working with rail providers for seamless connections to inland markets to create a new game-changing supply chain that reaches central Europe efficiently,” the Managing Director added.

APM Terminals Vado will also be the first container terminal in Italy to handle the new generation of containerships’ needs for water depth, crane reach and height, and quay wall weight requirements – integrated with an automated, safe container yard and trucker gate system, APM said in its release.

These benefits, combined with no air draft restrictions, create a new fully equipped port and inland system to better serve supply chains of the future.

The first major container facility

APM Terminals Vado is the first major new container facility built in Italy in decades.

The facility opens in 2019 and already features a fresh fruit logistics center with an onsite refrigerated warehouse – the largest in the Mediterranean market conveniently located in the port area,” APM said.

In August 2015, APM Terminals acquired the Vado Ligure Reefer Terminal as part of the port master plan to create new reefer supply chains for markets in northern Italy, southern France, Switzerland and Germany.

During the last year, APM Terminals signed a joint venture with COSCO Shipping Ports and Qingdao Port International Development for the Vado container terminal operation.
