ABP, NW Trading Limited agree deal for All Weather Terminal


Logistics, supply chain and storage company, NW Trading Limited (NWT), has agreed a long-term deal with Associated British Ports (ABP) for the All Weather Terminal at the Port of Hull.

The 16,630-square-metre fully enclosed cargo-handling and storage facility provides uninterrupted all-weather working and cargo storage for weather-sensitive products, according to NWT.

Cargo can thus be effectively handled from ship to shore without weather delays.

The terminal is segregated into three stores, two designed to store dry bulk cargo and the third to house breakbulk cargo.

The breakbulk facility benefits from five, 25 tonne-automated overhead gantry cranes, a designated undercover rail-freight connection, and HGV loading facilities.

NWT will now be operating the facility on a long-term lease where they will be handling and storing both bulk and bagged dry bulk commodities.

NW Trading Limited, Director, Zara Giles, said: “The addition of the All Weather Terminal to our facilities in Hull opens up access for our customers to deep water enabling more flexibility in their supply chain and allowing the procurement of product from further afield, key to staying competitive in today’s turbulent commodity markets.”

Director Humber, Simon Bird, said: “ABP has a longstanding relationship with NW Trading, which has been delivering operations at ABP Humber’s Port of Goole for many years now.

“We are thrilled to be supporting their continued business expansion into the Port of Hull, enabling them to make the most of the opportunity afforded by the port’s deep-sea connections and excellent road link to the M62 corridor.”

In February, ABP Humber completed an extension to its Humber Container Terminal at the Port of Hull, England.

Later that month, ABP announced its new sustainability strategy, Ready for Tomorrow (RFT), worth £2 billion.
