Associated British Ports (ABP), which operates 21 ports in the UK – including those at Ipswich and Lowestoft – has become Suffolk Chamber of Commerce's latest patron.

John Dugmore, chief executive of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, said ABP had become the chamber's 15th patron.

He said: 'It is a massive vote of confidence in the value this chamber delivers to its members and the wider Suffolk business community that a company of such major national and regional importance has decided to deepen its relationship with us and our network.'

ABP's operation at Lowestoft handles around 100,000 tonnes of cargo each year and is home to the operation and maintenance base for the Greater Gabbard Offshore wind farm.

ABP Short Sea Ports Director Andrew Harston said: 'The ports of Ipswich and Lowestoft look forward to working with the Suffolk Chamber and their members to continue to drive trade and growth in the region.'
