APM and Port of Rotterdam will invest more than $1 billion to expand the capacity of the Maasvlakte II Container Terminal

This is a major development in the world of shipping, as APM Terminals and the Port of Rotterdam announced plans to invest over $1 billion in doubling the handling capacity of the Maasvlakte II container terminal. With the expansion set to increase the terminal’s capacity by 2 million TEU, this is a testament to Rotterdam’s importance in global supply chains. Maasvlakte II is already a fully automated facility with zero carbon emissions, and the new section will operate with net-zero emissions and be fully automated as well. With the new capacity set to be operational in the second half of 2026, this development will have a significant impact on the shipping industry.
