Despite headwinds from the COVID-19 pandemic and disruptions to global supply chains, APM Terminals secured an all time high for container activity in Denmark during 2020. Throughout the year the largest terminal in Denmark, APM Terminals Aarhus, completed 330,000 container moves and processed 593,670 TEU, which represents an overall growth of 13 percent compared to 2019 and the previous record. The growth in volumes was primarily driven by reefer containers and the transportation of temperature-sensitive cargo coming out of Denmark.
In order to sustain these increased volumes, APM Terminals Aarhus ramped-up capacity several times during the year.
APM Terminals Aarhus handles more than 60 percent of the container volumes in Denmark and is among the most efficient and modern container terminals in Europe, delivering over 33 gross moves per hour.
