California United Terminals, a subsidiary of Hyundai Merchant Marine, will move from its current terminal at the Port of Long Beach to the neighbouring Port of Los Angeles, Pier 405/406. CUT will sublease a 91 acre portion of APMT’s Pier 400 property. No delays to customers are expected with the relocation.
Furthermore, benefits will include: 1,250 ft. dedicated berth, dedicated cranes, 91 acres of pure container yard space, on-dock rail service and dedicated in/out gates
“The new partnership between HMM,
APMT and the Port of Los Angeles demonstrates our commitment to serve this important gateway and the needs of the community today and for years to come,” said Lamont Petersen, VP of Marketing at HMM.
HMM has two Trans-Pacific services currently calling at Long Beach.
The last vessel for the Pacific Southwest (PSW) will depart Long Beach in mid-November and arrive for the first Los Angeles call in early December. While the Pacific China Express (PCX) will have the last vessel depart Long Beach in mid-December and arrive the latter part of the month at Pier 400.
