Tom Dynes will head up all landside operations at Southampton
Today, Associated British Ports (ABP), the UK’s leading ports group, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Tom Dynes as General Manager of Landside Operations for its Southampton region.

In his new role at ABP, Tom will lead the planning and activity of all landside operations, with responsibility for teams including stevedoring, port planning, cargo handling and support for specialist operations including cruise.
Alastair Welch, ABP’s Regional Director for Southampton, said:
“We’re delighted to welcome Tom back to ABP Southampton. We have had the privilege of working closely with Tom during his time at Solent Stevedores, and he brings a wealth of operational and leadership experience, as well as a great energy well suited to this varied and fast-paced environment.”
Tom will take up his role on 19 September.
