APM Terminals to acquire Aarhus container terminal

Aarhus Logistics Center A/S (ALC) is divesting its container terminal in the port of Aarhus to APM Terminals. The transfer of ownership will have effect as of 1 September 2020 and includes the operations as well as the port areas of ALC.

The terminal was established by ALC in the spring of 2017. However, due to limitations regarding area capacity and lack of prospects of further developing the business, ALC consequently decided to divest the terminal to APM Terminals.

“Aarhus has a central position for the container traffic, and in ALC, we have within a few years attained a strong activity level. However, we estimate that from a long-term perspective, it will be difficult to further develop our activities. Consequently, it will also involve challenges to continue servicing our clients in the most appropriate way. By selling the terminal to APM Terminals, we also ensure improved possibilities for the clients”,
says Jan Dam Poulsen, Managing Director, ALC.

“We are acquiring an interesting business with loyal clients, who will now gain access to a bigger network, and with that new development opportunities for their business. At the same time, we expect to be able to make the clients’ workday more efficient as administration decreases with just one operator”, states Dennis Olesen, Managing Director Nordics, APM Terminals.
