UK port operating firms invest over US$18 million in Southampton container capabilities

UK's ports group Associated British Ports (ABP) and UK's terminal operator Solent Stevedores have announced a joint investment of £17.5 million (US$18.7 million) in a new container offering for deep sea shipping lines at the Port of Southampton.

ABP said the project will create a 72,840m² facility, which will connect the existing intermodal rail transport site with laden and empty container handling, storage, maintenance and repair within a single site boundary, a first for the port.

The project broke ground in the Western Docks with contractors, Ryebridge Construction, and is expected to be completed in late 2023, while the work will take place across three stages in order not to interrupt rail terminal operations.
