Circulation no. 3 - 24/03/2020
The Coronavirus pandemic is creating unprecedented disruption to our society. Throughout this crisis the health and wellbeing of our colleagues, customers and their families remains our highest priority. ABP is committed to minimising disruption to our customers’ supply chains and preserving continuity of operational service across our ports; where we encounter any disruption, we are working closely with you to manage the impact.
Many companies are concerned and facing difficulties, and we are no different in ABP. We are in this crisis together, and we want to let you know that ABP will do our utmost to support your business with the least amount of interruption during these challenging times.
We are working closely with the UK Government to facilitate COVID-19 management and recovery plans. A number of financial support facilities have been announced by the UK Government. Further information on how to access this support can be found here UKG COVID-19 support for businesses.
We have previously outlined key actions in response to COVID-19 and summarise these again below:
We do this whilst continuing to liaise with all relevant health authorities to ensure our operations observe the most recent guidelines; protecting our colleagues and customers. We would ask customers to likewise respect the medical advice and adopt social distancing measures across the ports where possible.
As the UK’s leading port operator with a critical strategic role in supporting the nation’s supply chains, we will continue to provide updates on this dynamic situation in accordance with government advice.
Should you have any issues or questions related to any specific ABP locations, please contact the relevant ABP facility.
Together we will continue to fulfil our mission: Keeping Britain Trading.
