Whilst King’s Lynn is known for handling agribulks and aggregates, forest products at the port have been on the rise since 2020. The increased trade supports local jobs: ABP already directly employs 30 people from the market town, and it also supports local businesses, restaurants and shops.

“We knew customer would flock to the facility and they have,” said Kim Kennedy, King’s Lynn port manager. “It is great to see that ABP’s investments are drawing in more business which benefit the town and wider region.”

The Port of King’s Lynn is one of ABP’s three East Anglian Ports, the others being Lowestoft and Ipswich.
