ABP hands Hams Hall to Maritime Transport

[ June 13, 2022   //   ]

Associated British Ports (ABP) has awarded a long-term lease to Maritime Transport to operate its Hams Hall rail terminal in the Midlands, one of the UK’s busiest.

Maritime Transport, an ABP customer at the terminal, has been pursuing a wider strategy to transport more cargo by rail and the purpose-built site offers the opportunity to expand this further.

Operations will transfer on 3 July.

Maritime Transport executive chairman John Williams, said: “We have long viewed the rail freight terminal at Hams Hall as a critical location in our plans to move more cargo by rail and we are delighted to have been able to work closely with ABP to agree a long-term solution.”
