Freeport of Monrovia raises the bar

Last Friday was a historic day for APM Terminals Liberia Ltd. and the Freeport of Monrovia – a total $15 million commitment for two latest generation German made, Liebherr 600 model Mobile Harbor Cranes which will be used to load and unload containers from ships calling at the Freeport.

The cranes, along with the recently completed dredging of the Freeport of Monrovia, paves the way for even larger and more economical gearless vessels.

By enabling larger vessels with more containers to call, this project is in line with the country’s vision to attract more investments and stimulate economic growth.

This historic project has been driven by a partnership between APM Terminals Liberia, the National Port Authority (NPA), Liberian Maritime Authority (LiMA) and the Government of Liberia (GOL).

Together with regulatory stakeholders and partners, APM Terminals Liberia remains dedicated to transforming the Freeport of Monrovia into an economically viable gateway to the Mano River Union basin, the officials said.

The brand new mobile harbor cranes were built to APM Terminals Liberia’s specification and are applicable to quay and operations at the Freeport of Monrovia.
