APM Terminals Apapa Wins NPA Safety Award
The award was in recognition of the company’s achievements in the area of terminal safety culture and operating practices in Nigeria’s primary port city.
The Managing Director of APM Terminals Apapa, Andrew Dawes, has dedicated the award to the terminal’s employees and partners, saying:
“This achievement is made possible through the safety culture of personal responsibility which we practice and embrace, and through the personal commitment of our staff and business partners working together for a safe workplace environment.”
On a company-wide basis, APM Terminals’ Lost-Time Incident Frequency (LTIF) rate declined from 2.53 in 2013 to 1.81 per million man-hours worked in 2014 across the APM Terminals Global Terminal Network, in facilities managed by APM Terminals. The APM Terminals Apapa LTIF rate for 2014 was 0.47 per million man-hours worked.
APM Terminals Apapa is the largest container facility by capacity of the three serving Lagos, Nigeria’s largest city and business center. With a container throughput of 700,000 TEUs in 2014, APM Terminals Apapa is the busiest container terminal in the West African Region, handling 50 per cent of Nigeria’s inbound containers.
The company had since 2006 invested well over $350 million on expansion program and this has doubled container volumes received, just as productivity also increased significantly, with waiting time for vessel berthing eliminated.
