ABTO - purpose

The Association of Bulk Terminal Operators (ABTO)

Born out of an under representation of the sector at national government and international regulatory level.

ABTO provides a voice for bulk terminal operators, at a national and international level, providing a forum for its members to discuss the issues impacting seaborne trade and the global transportation of bulk commodities.

ABTO encourages the free and frank exchange of opinion to enable the bulk sector to present a united front in all discussions with governments, shippers, shipowners and operators in order to promote and protect member interests 

ABTO offers opportunities for members to advance their knowledge-base through conferences and workshops, which include presentations from speakers carrying out the latest technical research.
