ABP steels itself with new contract

UK freight forwarding company R.M. Maritime has contracted Associated British Ports (ABP) to handle steel at the port of Immingham.

According to ABP, it will be handling 40,000 tonnes of steel each year, destined to be used in the construction industry in the UK.

In its first shipment, ABP discharged 12,579 tonnes of steel beams from a 147-m long general cargo ship, New Age.

The steel, imported from the United Arab Emirates, will be stored externally and then distributed by road to Rainham Steel, which is based in Scunthorpe.

Jon Brownbridge, R.M. Maritime managing director, added: “As dedicated steel freight forwarders, we’re delighted with the manner and professionalism of the operation shown by the entire ABP team.”

ABP is a leading UK ports operator with 21 ports.
