Nigeria’s largest container terminal, APM Terminals Apapa has commissioned a new digitalised administrative building as part of its $438 million investment at the Lagos Port Complex Apapa.

The commissioning of the new smart building, which took place at the terminal in Apapa on Tuesday, is in line with APM Terminals’ commitment to introducing new innovations to help both shipping lines and landside customers achieve improved supply chain efficiency and flexibility in a cost-effective manner.

Speaking at the event, the Global Chief Operating Officer (COO) of APM Terminals, Keith Svendsen, who was in Nigeria for the commissioning, said the new building will set a new standard for port operation in Nigeria.

He said, “What is more important is to make sure that we are ready for the future. A port is one of the infrastructures that take years to plan and build. This is why we are working to make it better and get ready for the future,” Svendsen said.

The APM Terminals COO said the technology embedded in the new building will improve container handling operations and processing in the terminal particularly in enabling electronic invoicing, electronic receipt and online payment processes that allow customers to fast-track their documentation.

Also speaking, the Country Managing Director of APM Terminals Nigeria, Klaus Laursen, said APM Terminals Apapa has invested a total of $438 million in enabling developing infrastructure, acquiring equipment and improving processes at the terminal.

“In APM Terminals, we have led with a strong ambition to become a world-class terminal operator. We enable access to jobs, products, foods, and medicine that allow people to create and live better.
