February 22nd, 2023 marked a productivity milestone at APM Terminals Algeciras. The facility concluded operations on the vessel Mayview Maersk with Productive Moves Per Hour (PMPH) of 201.63, surpassing the symbolic number of 200 and establishing a new record for the terminal.
The 201.63 Productive Moves Per Hour figure – which is the generally accepted measure of the productivity of quay cranes at a container terminal – was achieved by 8 operating ship-to-shore (STS) cranes and during a port stay of 14.51 hours, compared to the target of 18.52. This was also the highest productivity recorded at APM Terminals Algeciras for any vessel or service. The vessel on which record operations were performed, Mayview Maersk, operates on Maersk’s Asia-Europe (AE) network, which is one of the world’s busiest trade lanes.

Our teams continuously raise the bar higher when it comes to performance and make such improvements possible thanks to their experience, enthusiasm and engagement”, comments Zsanett Balla, Chief Operating Officer at APM Terminals Algeciras.
