APM Terminals Mobile is actively working with logistics professionals looking to make their supply chains more competitive in a post COVID-19 world by explaining the attributes of the port as a logistics center. Major companies already in Alabama are Hyundai, AM/NS Calvert, Outokumpu, Northrop Grumman, Mercedes Benz, Honda, Airbus, Amazon, Walmart, Bombardier and BendPak who have selected the Port of Mobile and the state of Alabama as a hub for global logistics supply and distribution as well as manufacturing. Santa Paula, California-based BendPak recently opened a new distribution center 11 miles from APM Terminals Mobile and is able deliver products same-day or next-day to more customers in the eastern half of the country.

To serve cargo growth in the market, ocean carriers are adding more services and upsizing vessels. COSCO is upsizing vessels on their GME service calling Mobile, and the 2M Alliance of Maersk and MSC is upsizing some vessels in the TP18 and TP88 strings.

Transit times between Asia and US inlands are comparable via Mobile routing for those customers looking to add to their gateway supply chain options. Five class-I railroads operate adjacent to APM Terminals Mobile, ensuring fast, affordable supply chains from the Intermodal Container Transfer Facility delivering strong end-to-end supply chains to the US Midwest and central Canada, serving Memphis, Decatur, Detroit, Chicago, Toronto and Montreal destinations.

To fuel economic expansion, the Alabama Renewal Act allows companies with 75+ employees to get up to USD 3 million in tax deferral credits. Other business incentives include tax credits for cargo owners on incremental cargo volumes. Land is plentiful and open for investment with two logistics parks currently in operation and more to come. Foreign Trade Zone status in many designated locations near the port and business parks also increase the attractiveness of businesses looking for a new distribution center or manufacturing site.

For refrigerated cargoes, a world-class, new refrigerated warehouse is being built to enhance the port’s cold chain distribution center attractiveness. MTC Refrigerated Warehouse will open in January 2021 to serve international supply chains with the most modern refrigerated technology and capacity for the future growth of cold chains.
