ABP extends Humber cooperation with RMS

June 8 - Associated British Ports (ABP) and RMS Group have signed a new 15-year agreement, which will see the two companies work together to develop and grow the role of the Humber estuary in the UK economy.

RMS Group has facilities on all four of the Humber ports, as well as its own terminal facilities on the River Trent, and offers stevedoring, cargo handling and inland logistics for general cargoes, specialising in the steel and renewable energy sectors.

James Leeson, ABP head of commercial, Humber, commented: "RMS' businesses on the Humber have grown considerably from their initial operations at the Port of Goole. The demands for new, renewable energy sources have resulted in significant growth, most notably in Grimsby and at RMS' joint venture in Hull."

Leeson added that ABP has already invested GBP750,000 (USD1.14 million) in warehouse development to facilitate RMS' growth in the region.

Under the new agreement ABP will be working with RMS to attract new customers to its terminal operations and to ABP's Humber ports, and new investments have already been agreed for the company's terminal at Grimsby's Royal Dock.
