Dear Esteemed Customer,

Due to increased cargo discharge rate at APMT Apapa and non-commensurate cargo evacuation by importers to compliment this increase, APMT Apapa now has an unprecedented yard density and space constraints. To further expedite import deliveries, and improve on overall berth optimization to all stakeholders, the terminal, with cooperation from the shipping lines will adopt cargo stemming to Inland Container Depots as a measure to create more space for cargo on incoming vessels, thereby increasing efficiency and improving the overall turnaround time.

Please note the following guidelines for effective stemming:

•Cargo stemming will be for the whole vessel with the exception of Fast Track, specials, reefer, Pharmaceuticals and FTZ cargo as directed by NCS.
•The terminal will be stemming at least 17-20% of import volumes on a weekly basis.

KOTA SAHABAT / KSAH0044W is expected to berth at APMT on 15.8.20. Cargos that do not fall within the above stated categories will be transferred to Clarion Bonded Terminal for delivery. We have however made provisional arrangement to have some shipments that do not fall within the above stated categories, retained on-dock for delivery. Kindly contact us to confirm the expected delivery location of your shipment.

We thank you for your patronage and understanding.
