This is the highest level of activity registered on a ship in the Catalan terminal since the arrival of the OOCL Brussels in 2017, when 5,323 movements were performed, APM said.

A sustained productivity of 135.46 Berth Moves Per Hour was reached during the operation.

The record was achieved as part of the €47 million investments made in recent months.

These investments include the acquisition of two Super Post Panamax cranes, 29 new straddle carriers and a new Rack for reefer connections.

These investments are part of APM Terminals' strategy to modernize its current fleet and increase its equipment's capacity and productivity, as well as to improve safety at the terminal.

Over the past few months, we've made a big effort to improve the technical equipment and machinery necessary to operate the most modern container ships calling at Barcelona. Fortunately, we're already seeing positive results and are confident that this record will be the first of many more to come,
