AP L A n d Encinal To Develop Container Terminal In A l a m e da

American President Lines, Ltd.

(APL) of Oakland, Calif., and Encinal Terminals of Alameda, recently announced agreement to develop a 23-acre full-service berth and container facility in the island city of Alameda. Target date for completion of the initial phase, to be capitalized at $3.5 million, is October 1, 1980.

The new venture was announced by W.B. Hubbard, senior vice president (operations) of APL, and president of Eagle Marine Services, Ltd., the wholly owned subsidiary which will operate the facility; and Chengben (Peter) Wang, president of Encinal Terminals, Alameda.

Mr. Hubbard said the project has been launched to help meet massive expected demand, on the part of vessel operators and the shipping public, for container facilities in the San Francisco Bay Area over the next decade and beyond.

The new terminal is to include a berth for oceangoing container vessels, two modern gantry cranes, facilities for 1,000 dry and refrigerated containers, and an innovative receiving and delivery system for trucks. To be located at the Encinal Terminals' Berth 5 complex, it will be Alameda's only full-service container-handling operation.

Raymond L. Cunan, vice presiident and general manager of Eagle Marine, said the developers of the project are currently negotiating with several vessel op- M A R I N E DIVISION erators as prospective tenants. He said the facility will be fully operational upon c o m p l e t i o n o f "phase one," but that additional development on the site is projected.

Eagle Marine is a comprehensive container stevedoring contractor, providing services in Los Angeles, Oakland, and the Pacific N o r t h w e s t for APL and other vessel operators.
