A big UK port operator has confirmed it is in the “process of a major restructure” involving compulsory and voluntary redundancies.

Associated British Ports (ABP) said it wanted to create a more modern and agile organisation, which will involve voluntary redundancies and a small-scale compulsory redundancy programme across its Humber operation.

A spokesperson for ABP said: “Associated British Ports (ABP) has been undertaking a review of costs with a focus on developing a modern and agile organisation structure. As a result the company is in the process of a major restructure.

“Along with voluntary redundancies ABP is also running a small-scale compulsory redundancy programme across most of the Humber functions which will allow us to provide a more lean and efficient service to our customers in the coming years. Those colleagues affected by this are being supported.”

In June, ABP announced it would restructure its corporate affairs & marketing team and decrease the number of ABP regions from four to three.
