The multipurpose Port of Aarhus, located in the mid-eastern part of Jutland, is Denmark's largest container port, allowing calls of the world's biggest oceangoing vessels. In 2013, the company handled 431,000 TEU, comprising around 60% of country's market share in container sector.

Port of Aarhus is divided into six areas: container terminal, multi terminal, bulk terminal, tank terminal, ferry terminal and cruise ships berth. The container terminal – APMT-CS – spans over 700,000 m2. Vessels of 15 m depth can moor by 8 available berths. The terminal's 1,300 m long quays are equipped with straddle carriers, reachstackers and 8 STS container cranes: 4 Super Post-Panamax, 3 Post-Panamax and 1 Panamax. Each Super Post Panamax crane's ability to move 35 containers per hour buoys up harbour's efficiency.

Aarhus is also a port of call for Maersk Line's AE10 service, which directly links Europe and the Far East. The port can be reached through regular feeder/shortsea connections provided by such operators as: MSC, CMA CGM/MacAndrews, Unifeeder, Seago Line, Containerships, Hapag-Lloyd, Eimskip, Samskip, Sea Connect and K-Line.
