The new facility, which streamlines the company s operations, will also have the added benefit of reducing lorry miles on the surrounding area s roads, now that Mole Valley Farmers can bag its cargo on site at the port.Mole Valley Farmers re-location to ABP Teignmouth follows a ten-year agreement signed between the two companies and strengthens the port s agribulk trade.The annual throughput at the new facility is expected to be in the region of 60,000 tonnes a year.
This new bagging facility not only provides an ideal distribution hub for Mole Valley Farmers to serve its customers, but by re-locating to Teignmouth and reducing lorry miles on our roads, there is a positive outcome for the environment too.We are delighted that this new joint facility will enable Mole Valley Farmers to offer its members a more search engine marketing competitively-priced product through greater efficiency of our operations, while also reducing the impact that heavy lorries have on the environment.
The first ship to arrive at the newly-operational facility was Simwar, which discharged over 1,500 tonnes of urea from Hamburg, Germany.The previous record at the port, which is owned and operated by Associated British Ports (ABP), was a 3,282-tonne consignment of cement clinker shipped to Northern Ireland in 1987.
The growth in volumes in 2002, coupled with the progress and development announcements made by ABP during this year, has set Plymouth and Teignmouth on course for meeting the future needs of our customers and growing the ports business.The new scheme will secure the future of the port, and ABP anticipates that the application process will be completed in time for the port s redevelopment programme to start this year.Associated British Ports (ABP) Ports of Plymouth and Teignmouth witnessed growth in important trades in 2002.Read More
