APM Terminals and Maersk announce an agreement for shifting the carrier’s feeder volumes from Copenhagen to a new facility in the Port of Kalundborg, to be operated by APM Terminals. As part of the agreement between AP Moller Maersk and APM Terminals, Kalundborg will receive two weekly feeder services with rotation Bremerhaven in Germany, Hallstahammer in Sweden, Helsingborg Sweden, Kalundborg Denmark, Aarhus Denmark, Fredericia Denmark and back to Bremerhaven, which represents approximately 30% of the volumes of the island of Zealand in Denmark. With the new connection, Kalundborg will be added to global supply chain routes by gaining a link with Aarhus and therefore Maersk’s AE5 service, which connects Aarhus and North Europe ports with Asia.
