APM Terminals invests US$140 million to expand facility at Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacan


APM Terminals is on a pathway to be the World’s Best Terminal Company. They pretend to achieve this by constantly lifting the standard of our customers’ experience at each of our 64 key locations around the globe. On their decarbonization journey towards net zero by 2040, they say they will also lift the standard of responsibility.

APM Terminals recently announced a $140 million investment to increase the capacity of its container facility at Mexico’s Port of Lazaro Cardenas.

APM Terminals Lazaro Cardenas said the project will increase the capacity of the first semi-automated facility in Latin America, with an additional 1 million twenty-foot equivalent units to position it as a hub for the Americas region.

The Port of Lazaro Cardenas is a deepwater container facility located along the country’s Pacific coast, about 386 miles west of Mexico City.

The project is scheduled to be completed in 2026 and will allow the terminal to handle an annual throughput capacity of 2.2 million TEUs.

The expansion also includes six automated rail-mounted gantry cranes, 14 new shuttle carriers, and four empty handlers.
