Owned by Associated British Ports (ABP), the port has remained open and busy since 23 March 2020, handling 2 Mt of exports and imports of various products including agribulks, construction materials and timber.


Around 9,000t of aggregate – which enabled the port to pass the 2 Mt mark – recently arrived on board of the Hopper Dredger CHARLEMAGNE, which self-discharged at Ipswich’s West Bank Terminal.


Andrew Harston, ABP Wales and short sea ports director, commented: “It is fantastic to see our Port of Ipswich defending its title as the UK’s number one grain export port with this tonnage milestone and we are looking forward to a strong year ahead in terms of cargo volumes.


“I am proud of our ABP colleagues in Ipswich but also across all of ABP’s ports who have kept goods moving and trade flowing despite the global pandemic.”
