Brussels, December 3rd, 2015

FEPORT General Assembly members have formally welcomed ABP as a new member.

ABP, UK’s leading port operator, with a unique network of 21 ports across England, Scotland and Wales has become as from today a member of FEPORT, the Federation of European Private Port Operators Association which represents the interests of the terminal operators and stevedoring companies performing operations and carrying out activities in the seaports of the European Union and Turkey.

“Private ports have a critical role in facilitating trade in the UK and across Europe. Making sure public policy can enable these ports to continue to attract investment and deliver for customers is vital. We are therefore delighted to join FEPORT and support its important work” commented James Cooper, Chief Executive, Associated British Ports (ABP).

“We are very glad to welcome ABP as a member of FEPORT. ABP is a leading UK private ports group which plays a significant economic role by investing in infrastructure thus contributing to facilitate a whole range of businesses. Private Port Operators, members of FEPORT are investing massively, i.e. more than 40 Billion Euros over the last 10 years to modernize European ports. We will continue to raise EU policy makers’ awareness about the role we are playing” said Mr Gunther Bonz, President of FEPORT.
