New contract, new warehouse at Hull

[ July 31, 2012   //   ]

Associated British Ports Hull has signed a five-year agreement with Jenkins Shipping for the handling and storage of paper and forest products including a new 9,500 sq m warehouse in Queen Elizabeth Dock now under construction. Jenkins Shipping has won a contract for the import of paper reels manufactured in Sweden by Holmen Paper. The warehouse adds to the 133,500 sq m of covered storage space already dedicated to paper and forest products in the Port of Hull.

Matt Jukes, ABP Port Director Hull & Goole, said: “We are delighted to have signed this agreement with Jenkins Shipping to make the Port of Hull the main hub for Holmen Paper’s UK business. Our investment in the new warehouse consolidates the Port of Hull’s position as the natural distribution centre for paper and forest products from Scandinavia and the Baltic.”
