Liberian port receives Kalmar equipment

APM Terminals Liberia has announced that the two additional Kalmar Reach Stackers, which it has commissioned, have arrived at the Freeport of Monrovia aiming to improve the operational efficiency of the port.

On 2 July, the two machines arrived at the Liberian port through the vessel JSP Vento.

The decision for the additional equipment investment aims to support the strong growth in the Freeport of Monrovia and further improve customer service levels for Liberian importers and exporters, according to APM Terminals announcement.

"This investment of approximately US$1 million will allow APM Terminals staff to work more productively and most importantly, improve the service levels to our importers and exporters," commented Jonathan Graham, APM Terminals Liberia Managing Director, who went on to point out, "Over the last decade, APM Terminals has invested over US$100 million in the Port of Monrovia."

The commissioning also brought two trainers into the country to aid in developing the technical and operational skills of APM Terminals employees in handling and maintaining the Reach Stacker machines.

"Along with investing in equipment and tools, we are fully committed to investing into the skills and talents of our great employees.  In fact, we have recently improved and expanded our crane and reach stacker operators’ training and simulator programme to allow employees to both improve their skill level and learn to multi-skill on different types of port equipment," said APM Terminals Head of Human Resources, Samuel Duo.
