ABP and Peterson UK, a major logistics and service provider to the offshore energy industry, have recently celebrated the 100th vessel handled at the Port of Lowestoft in East Anglia, as part of their ongoing business partnership.

To mark the occasion, members of Peterson’s team were invited to meet with ABP’s CEO Henrik Pedersen and ABP colleagues in central London, where they were presented with an original painting created by renowned local artist, Stuart Roy.  

Back in January, Peterson UK Limited, began a new long-term agreement with ABP to establish a new operational and logistics base at the Port of Lowestoft.

Jason Hendry, Regional Director, Peterson, said: "Our supply base at Lowestoft was set up at the beginning of 2019 to serve the offshore energy sector as an alternative base for the UK Southern North Sea (SNS) region. The facility at the port is proving to be an excellent base for our turnkey, end-to-end logistics offering and vessel pooling/sharing concepts and services, which provide our customers with significant cost savings. We were therefore delighted to celebrate this notable milestone in partnership with ABP and we look forward to further success in the future."

As part of the agreement, Peterson operates a wide range of warehouses and other cargo and logistic services from the port, including fuel bunkering to support the oil and gas and renewable energy sectors being supplied from its Lowestoft Supply Base.

Andrew Harston, ABP Director Short Sea Ports, said: “We were delighted to celebrate this excellent milestone in our partnership with Peterson UK and we look forward to continuing to collaborate to support the local economy.”
