ABP has welcomed long term customer ADM Agriculture’s fertiliser division to the Humber.
The Lincolnshire-based element of the global business, which bought out Gleadell Agriculture pre-pandemic, is one of the largest fertiliser suppliers in the UK. It has signed a three-year extension agreement for the import, handling, bagging, and processing of crop-boosting nutrients at ABP’s Bulk Park at Port of Immingham.
The deal will see "extensive fertiliser volumes" come through what is the UK’s largest port by volume of cargo.

Simon Bird, regional director of the Humber ports said: “We’re delighted to welcome ADM’s fertiliser division to the ABP family at the Port of Immingham.
“ADM is a long-term customer of ours, a premier global human and animal nutrition company and one of the world’s largest agricultural processors. This new partnership highlights the port’s key location in global trading and that we remain the port of choice for many.”
Major investment has been made in the bulk park in recent years, leading to industry awards. It offers more than 1.3 million sq m of covered storage.
It comes as the port is also celebrating 110 years of operations, and proposals have just been revealed for green hydrogen production with Air Products, building on plans for a huge terminal build with Stena Line for North Sea roll-on roll off cargo.
Calum Findlay, head of fertiliser for ADM, said: “The Port of Immingham is key to the on-going development of our UK fertiliser business, and we are delighted to be in partnership with ABP.”
