APM Terminals Mobile to expand rail facility

APM Terminals Mobile is expanding its rail infrastructure to meet the demand for increased supply chain gateway options and inland rail logistics by building a rail facility.

The expansion includes additional tracks, railyard storage space, and improved access from the berth at the Mobile location. These additions and improved accessibility will promote productivity and safety, as well as supply chain speed to market, officials said. It will take around two years to complete and will increase the length of the track to 1,200 feet.

“Our customers are looking for expanded options for their supply chains so we are focusing on faster connections to rail providers into inland markets,” said Leo Huisman, head of APM Terminals Americas.

The Alabama Port Authority will be making a roadway fly-over bridge to allow free railway
access both to and from the facility. This will allow APM Terminals Mobile to give on-dock rail service.

The new facility will eventually link APM Terminals Mobile to the future Alabama Port
Authority’s Montgomery inland port. That is expected to be completed in 2025.

Terminals Mobile will also be doubling its container capacity for future growth which is expected to be over 1 million TEU in 2025.
