DELIVERING JOBS AND DRIVING GROWTH
ABP is the UK’s leading ports operator with a unique network of 21 ports. In 2015 ABP and its customers handled over 92 million tonnes of cargo, including 30 million tonnes for export. Together with our customers, we support 84,000 jobs around Britain and contribute £5.6 billion to the UK economy every year.
It’s a story we are proud of but it doesn’t end there. Our 5-year investment programme is worth £1 billion and will increase our contribution to the economy by £1.75 billion to £7.35 billion each and every year.
Our investment is designed to respond to the needs of our customers whose businesses rely on our ports for access to international and, in some cases, domestic markets. Helping these firms compete on the global stage and protecting national energy security are key roles our ports play in the UK economy.
