Contract Renewal for Felixstowe Agencies Ltd

Boatman services contract is renewed at Port of Ipswich.

Port services supply specialist Felixstowe Agencies Ltd (FAL) is delighted to announce its contract renewal for the continuous supply of boatmen services for Associated British Ports, Port of Ipswich.

Tim Meyer of Felixstowe Agencies Ltd has worked in ports since he was 18 years old, so now coming close to 50 years’ experience. Having provided various associated dock services within Felixstowe and Harwich, Tim started to provide boatman services to ABP Ipswich some 10 years ago; mooring and unmooring commercial vessels entering and leaving the port.

Since then, and with his co-director Colin Gardner the company has expanded its operations to provide stevedore services to ABP and its customers in both Ipswich and King Lynn.

In 2019 Felixstowe Agencies Ltd signed a contract to supply a dockside haulage service loading and unloading bulk cargoes to and from vessels within the Port of Ipswich. Tim says: “Over the past two years we’ve expanded and now supply this service to many port users including Origin Fertilisers and Ipswich Grain Terminal. Felixstowe Agencies now operates a fleet of 20 vehicles within Ipswich.

“Ports have had to keep working throughout the Pandemic, and Felixstowe Agencies, in turn, has maintained its services. This has only been possible because of great teamwork, strong leadership and good communication with both customers and suppliers. Felixstowe Agencies is extremely proud of our association with ABP and are one of their preferred suppliers and look forward to any challenges ahead.”
