For 14 years until 2003 Liberia was gripped by a shockingly violent civil
war. Infrastructure collapsed, thousands died and the country all but
came to a standstill. The gateway to the Liberian economy Monrovia’s
Port, once the pride of the region, was destroyed. Then in 2010, a 25
year concession between APM, a division of Maersk, and Liberia’s
National Port Authority was struck and APM Terminals took over
operating and developing the port’s terminal. USD $120 million has
since been invested in terminal infrastructure, with more to come, and
trade through the port has increased by 30% in just 2 years due to the
concession
