APM Terminals considers moving headquarters to Portsmouth
- June 11, 2008
APM Terminals is considering moving its North American headquarters to the $450 million terminal it opened in Portsmouth last year, according to The Virginian-Pilot.
APM, a division of Denmark-based A.P. Moller-Maersk, currently has its North American headquarters in Charlotte, N.C.
Portsmouth city councilors told the newspaper that APM is currently looking for a $500,000 city grant and a tax abatement of up to 50 percent on investments between $50 million and $250 million. APM plans to expand its Portsmouth terminal.
The Pilot said the city council could vote on a deal as soon as July.
