Newport, the most easterly of ABP's South Wales ports, is ideally located to serve the UK's main industrial and commercial areas. The port has excellent road communications, being just five minutes from J28 of the M4. Potentially, this can lead to better vehicle utilisation with both time and cost savings for customers. The port also has direct rail connections to the deep-water berths, offering flexibility and further cost-savings, especially for heavier cargo loads. The port employs direct labour and enjoys excellent labour relations. Flexible working conditions allow Newport to offer 24-hour working and an inclusive total logistics package. The port is able to handle a wide range of traffics including fresh produce, agribulks, vehicles, steel, solid fuel, minerals, forest products, scrap, general cargo and project cargoes.
