‘APMT solidifies its position in the Americas and Mexico’


APM Terminals (APMT) has made significant changes in its leadership in the Americas region to enhance logistics and commercial capacity, aiming to attract investments resulting from nearshoring within the North American trade bloc.

Marliz Bermúdez has been appointed as the new Head of Investments for the Americas Region, while Beatriz Yera is the new Managing Director for APMT in Mexico. This move is expected to bring efficiency, reliability, and safety for customers in Mexico and accelerate growth in the Americas.

Yera, with over 25 years of experience in leadership positions in freight, procurement, commercial, ports, and terminals, has previously worked as the Sales Manager for Maersk and Chief Commercial Officer at APMT Lázaro Cárdenas. Bermudez, on the other hand, has developed a more efficient organization to manage the growth of Phase II of Lázaro Cárdenas, scheduled to start operations in early 2026.

Starting her marine career in 2003, Bermudez has worked in both liner and terminal sectors for 17 years, handling operational, commercial, and project implementation responsibilities. The recent announcement from APMT Callao indicates a commitment to reducing emissions by 36% in 2024, 55% in 2030, and 100% by 2040.

Overall, the appointments of Bermúdez and Yera demonstrate APMT’s dedication to growth, efficiency, and sustainability in the Americas region.
