G4S Security Services (UK), part of G4S plc, has been appointed by ABP (Associated British Ports) Humber to provide a range of security services across the Ports of Grimsby, Immingham (South Humber), Hull and Goole (North Humber).
The contract, fixed for five years, began in March. G4S will provide frontline port security and access control for Port Estates. G4S reports that it already provides security for ABP Southampton. Douglas Greenwell, Sales and Marketing Director, G4S Security Services (UK), said: “We are delighted to have secured this contract. ABP Humber needed a specialist in the maritime sector. With our experience of working with ABP Southampton and the capability to provide UK coverage, we are hoping this is just the next step in forging a wider and longer term relationship between the two companies.” And Gary Crossland, Contracts Manager, ABP Humber said: “It is crucial for ABP Humber to ensure security officers working at our facility understand the Transec guidelines and ensure maritime regulations are applied. We needed to appoint a company that could meet all of our service requirements. G4S has demonstrated the relevant management capabilities, and has experience of maritime security, specifically with ABP. The company also offers unique Management Information Systems which we expect to improve efficiency.”
