Associated British Ports (ABP) is setting up a new IT hub to lead transformative, technology-driven change in its business.
ABP has announced it will establish a new ‘IT hub’ at the Port of Cardiff to provide Information Technology services for its business and customers.
“The significant investment by ABP is expected to create a number of new jobs in service and infrastructure support, project management, developers and analysts, and build on its existing IT team based in the region,” ABP said.
ABP operates at 21 terminals and transport related business in the UK, and is currently implementing SAP across its operation. “The new initiative will create a range of career opportunities for IT professionals to support a number of existing systems including SAP ERP, as well as looking at how technology can improve the service offered to ABP’s customers and business,” the company said. It is currently recruiting for a number of IT roles, which can be found at the company’s careers pages.
“Investing in technology is an important part of our future as a business. We are delighted to be investing in Wales, and the vibrant city of Cardiff, to create our new IT hub, which will use the latest technology to improve our business in a wide range of areas from stock management to customer service,” said ABP’s CEO Henrik L. Pedersen.
ABP’s Cardiff technology hub will be part of a wider IT solutions network the company is rolling out, with other locations including London, Hull and Southampton, all opening later this year.
