APM Terminals announces new Americas organisation

APM Terminals has announced a new regional structure after the outcome of a commercial study that analysed the structure and requirements of global and regional customer networks and how to better serve their future needs for vessel schedule changes, berth windows, terminal yard needs, truck gates, inland transportation flows, empty equipment flows and business continuity plans.

The new regions are Americas, Africa/Europe and Asia Pacific effective from 12 July.

By combining the full Americas scope across North America and South America, APM Terminals believes it will be better able to serve both East/West trades, North/South trades and landside supply chains.

Leo Huisman, appointed regional managing director of APM Terminals Americas

Leo Huisman, the current APM Terminals Latin America regional managing director for the past three years based in Panama has been appointed regional managing director of APM Terminals Americas.

“We want to continuously improve our way of working for customers and this more integrated approach to our Americas regional structure commercially, operationally and sustainably enables us to get into a higher gear for customer performance and our ESG goals,” stated Huisman.

Jeremy Ford, APM Terminals North America’s Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) has been appointed CCO of the Americas, based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“Our goal is to create more opportunities for customers across our Americas container terminals so that liner operators can optimize schedule rotations, vessel utilizations, equipment flows and supply chain velocity. This new Americas structure enables us to accelerate decision-making and response times to customers,” he commented.

In the Americas, APM Terminals operates in 15 terminals and seven inland services sites in 11 countries.
