APM Terminals signs up to new Bangkok terminal development

Bangkok’s cramped container facilities are set to get some much needed extra space. APM Terminals has signed a memorandum of understanding with Sahathai Terminal PLC (PORT) and Mitr Phol Sugar to develop a 345,000 teu capacity greenfield container terminal in the Thai capital to be called Bangkok River Terminal (BRT).

“Once developed, we expect the terminal to play a critical role in lifting trade for Thailand. It will not only deliver higher reliability for global customers, but also enable more efficient multi-modal transportation options for Thai shippers, thereby delivering ease of doing business and growing Thailand’s economy.” said Maarten Degryse, managing director, APM Terminals Inland Services, Thailand.
