Rob Smith, manager at ABP Ipswich, said: "This contract has benefited both the port and Rugby Cement. The port has ample storage capacity and equipment to handle large quantities of dry bulks easily and is ideally located for access to Rugby Cement's plant. We hope to have the opportunity to work with the company again in the future."
