APM Terminals Tacoma ends lease

APM Terminals Tacoma will ended its operations on September 30, 2017 as part of its plans to transfer the lease to Seattle-based SSA Marine.

SSA Marine formed a new joint venture with Matson Lines, called SSAT, which started operations October 2, 2017. APM Terminals Tacoma lease was set to expire December 31, 2017 and the contractual language allowed the lease transfer.

“We are proud of the service we have been able to provide to our customers, the Port of Tacoma and the Seaport Alliance, and the Safety performance recognition consistently received by the Pacific Maritime Association,”
stated Wim Lagaay, Head of USA and Europe Portfolio for APM Terminals.

APM Terminals Tacoma was used primarily by the Matson Alaska Service, with twice-weekly sailings between Tacoma, Anchorage and Kodiak, Alaska, and a weekly service between Tacoma and Dutch Harbor, Alaska, handling a combined 190,000 TEUs in 2016.

APM Terminals designs, builds and operates port and terminal facilities, as well as providing cargo Inland Services for cargo transportation between port facilities and inland locations, as well as other associated cargo handling functions.

Its US portfolio includes operations at APM Terminals Pier 400 Los Angeles, the largest proprietary terminal in North America; APM Terminals Port Elizabeth, at the Port of New York & New Jersey; APM Terminals Mobile, Alabama; and a 49% share in the South Florida Container Terminal, at the Port of Miami, Florida.
