Shipping of large amounts of recycling products


Watch a video of effective handling of recycling products

A significant element in the transformation of ADP's ports is our focus on recycling products. Our ports often serve as hub for the shipping and handling of large quantities of recyclable scrap metal, elements or project cargo for the decommissioning industry. With large areas near the quay and a central location with direct access to the motorway network, the ports of Fredericia and Nyborg are particularly suitable for storage as well as shipping of recycling products.

Location is key

The Port of Fredericia is centrally located with easy access to the Baltic region. With areas near the quay right next to 15 metres of water and a good location in relation to international markets, we annually ship large quantities of recyclable iron in cooperation with our port operators. At the Port of Nyborg, we also offer well-developed port facilities, a water depth of 11 metres and extensive experience within the handling of large elements for the decommissioning industry.

Increasing demand for storage capacity and water depth

The Danish recycling industry has an increasing demand for storage capacity and shipping of larger amounts of recycling products. Larger amounts require larger ships and therefore the demand of infrastructure hubs with easy access to large water depth has increased in the recycling industry.

The Port of Fredericia is an ideal port in relation to water depth and terminal areas near the quays. With a central location in relation to international markets and the opportunities to store recycling products on large terminal areas means that several recycling companies have moved their activities to the Port of Fredericia in regards of storage, handling and shipping of recyclable scrap metal.
