ABP works closely with its customers to handle a wide range of steel and other metals, including recycled metal for export. Together with our customers, we handle more than 4.5 million tonnes of metals each year.
13 of our ports handle metals and we have dedicated facilities across our group. On the Humber, the ports of Hull and Goole have all-weather steel handling terminals, providing a ‘one-stop-shop’ for ship’s agency, cargo handling, storage & distribution on behalf of our customers.
In South Wales we have a steel terminal at the Port of Newport that currently handles over 500,000 tonnes of steel each year. This facility has 300,000sqm of covered storage, with an undercover rail siding served by gantry cranes. In addition, the South Side Queen Alexandria dock in Cardiff has a specialist steel terminal complete with a long product manufacturing plant and gantry cranes.
We recognise the importance of long-standing relationships with both international steel producers and customers. Our facilities are operated by companies who are leaders in this field. With continuous investments in equipment, employees and state-of-the-art IT systems, we aim to provide outstanding facilities and to offer exciting opportunities for new and existing businesses.
Our commercial team would be pleased to put together a package of port facilities tailored for your business in our unique network of 21 ports.
