APM Terminals collaborated with non-profit group TwoBillionEyes Foundation to offer free eye tests and corrective glasses for truck drivers. The move seeks to create new employment opportunities and improves terminals’ cargo shipping. As explained, truck drivers’ unclear vision affects safety of the people and the efficient operation of the terminals.
In a bid to leverage the new technologies to drive operational efficiency, APM Terminals announced the introduction of drones at its inland services facilities in San Antonio and Santiago, Chile, so that safety supervisors can monitor activities more effectively and safely.
The APM Terminals Global Terminal Network is working closely with supply chain partners across the portfolio to ensure seamless implementation of SOLAS weight certification requirements for export containers.
With just 50 days until SOLAS Verified Gross Mass (VGM)comes into force, APM Terminals announced that it will provide VGM Generation Services to supply chain partners at 29 loactions globally.
