Associated British Ports (ABP) has produced a ‘Resilience brochure’, outlining the services and operations available to keep the country trading in the event of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit. It includes a maps of services and a list of the capabilities of each port within the ABP group.
ABP has invested a total of £250 million since the EU referendum in 2016 including container and ferry facilities on the Humber to help businesses bypass disruption, and £50 million to boost container capacity at Hull and Immingham; £65 million to help ensure the future of the steel industry on the river Humber; £55 million to enhance the automotive and cruise offering in Southampton; and a range of other investments throughout its network of 21 ports across England, Scotland and Wales.
ABP chief executive Henrik Pedersen, said: “We want to send a strong message that ABP stands ready to keep Britain trading through Brexit, and we will continue to invest to drive trade and create jobs over the longer term.”
