Associated Danish Ports A/S (ADP) owns and operates several ports in Denmark. The company is the largest Danish port operator with a throughput of about 17 million tonnes.
The company is organized as a limited company and the business is conducted on a full commercial basis. The course for the coming decade has been set in the ambitious strategy plan “Strategy 2010”, which is available via the website.
The strategy is based upon five primary segments. Liquid bulk where the company already holds a leading position. Dry bulk where the ambition is to broaden the current platform. RO/RO where the focus is on developing a turntable for the Baltics and Scandinavia. Containers where a dual strategy targets both mothervessels and feedervessels. General cargo, with the ambition of cementing the leading position within steel and forest products.
The commercial activities are primarily concentrated at the gateways to the Baltic Sea. The Fredericia Terminal is located at the Little Belt and offers with a water depth of 15 metres ideal conditions for oceangoing vessels. Direct access to the motorway and rail tracks on all quays ensures efficient interchange between sea, road and rail. Located in the Triangle Region, one of the most dynamic regions in Denmark, an important hinterland is available for all types of cargo.
The Nyborg Terminal is located at the Great Belt, the primary route for all larger vessels to and from the Baltic Sea. The terminal is deliberately isolated from residential areas, is located less than one kilometer from motorway E20 and can be connected to the international railway system running on the doorstep of the terminal. The plans for Nyborg involve an international container transshipment hub.
