Grain grows for ABP

[ September 11, 2015   //   ]

ABP’s ports of King’s Lynn and Ipswich have handled record grain exports in August, following extensive investment.
A strong harvest has seen more than 47,400 tonnes on behalf of FennGrain and Openfield pass through King’s Lynn in August, surpassing the previous record by 715 tonnes. This follows significant investment by ABP and its customers in storage facilities and handling equipmen, doubling handling speeds to 150 tonnes per hour.
In Ipswich, 119,548 tonnes of grain were exported through Ipswich Grain Terminal and Clarkson Port Services facilities, beating a previous record of 107,400 recorded in August 2003. The increase in grain exports follows a £2.2m investment in the state-of-the-art Orwell Bulk Terminal.
