In the UK, the port of Ipswich, which belongs to Associated British Ports, has opened a new £2.2 million dry bulk warehouse. Known as the Orwell Bulk Terminal, it is a replacement for the previous Number 3 warehouse at Cliff Quay and has been designed to house commodities such as grain and barley, as well as other agribulks.

The building is powered by solar panels, making it energy sustainable.
In 2014, the port of Ipswich handled more than 1.5 million tonnes of dry bulk cargo.
