From the UK to Scandinavia, northern and southern Europe - from Holland to Spain - and Ireland, ABP has services to offer freight and passengers with or without cars.  ABP's eight ports accommodating roro, freight passengers, trade cars, and vehicles, handle in excess of 820,000 units and 1.5 million passengers each year.

The Ports of Southampton and Grimsby have dedicated facilities for, in particular, the import and export of trade cars.  At Southampton, ABP has invested in the construction of four multi-deck car park facilities to handle the export of cars, while at Grimsby it is expected that the £25 million Grimsby Riverside Terminal will be open in 2013 to cement the port's position as the UK's foremost import car terminal.

For deep sea and short sea freight options, Hull, Immingham, and Ipswich, offer a multitude of services to the Continent, Scandinavia, and The Baltic, for both accompanied and unaccompanied trailer operations.

At Plymouth, the home to services operated by Brittany Ferries, France and Spain are within easy reach; and at Troon, P&O Ferries have services for freight and passengers with or without cars to Larne in order to serve the Irish market.

Global services are also available at Southampton, with companies such as Grimaldi and Wallenius Wilhelmsen, that meet the needs of trade car to project cargoes requiring roro services to the Iberian and Mediterranean regions, North America, Asia, and Southern Hemisphere destinations.
