APM Terminals Jacksonville ends lease

Jacksonville, Florida – APM Terminals Jacksonville ceased operations as of June 30, 2015.

Opened in 1988 with an annual throughput capacity of 300,000 TEUs, the facility, located on Blount Island in the Port of Jacksonville, handled as many as 242,000 TEUs in 2010.

The decision of the terminal’s primary customer, Horizon Lines, to halt its Puerto Rico service and sell off its company assets in 2014, was the determining factor in APM Terminals’ decision to end the Jacksonville terminal lease. Throughput at APM Terminals Jacksonville was 182,438 TEUs in 2014. Last year, APM Terminals Global Terminal Network handled a total of 38.3 million TEUs world-wide.

Eight APM Terminals employees were affected by the Jacksonville terminal closure: four were placed in new jobs within APM Terminals, with the remainder finding employment elsewhere.

APM Terminals currently operates five container terminals in US ports, in Elizabeth, New Jersey; Miami, Florida; Mobile, Alabama; Los Angeles, California; and Tacoma, Washington. Total container throughput at APM Terminals’ US facilities was 6.15 million TEUs in 2014.
