Blue Everton Destined for Eastern India
ABC shipped our first deep-sea ferrous scrap cargo from the Port of Bellingham, cementing our position as the US west coast’s newest bulk exporter.
The shipment marks a milestone for us after entering the US market with a long-term lease agreement in July at the port with accompanying plans to build a processing facility nearby.
The Blue Everton vessel, was a 23,000 metric tonne (t) mixed-composition cargo consisting of 10,000t HMS 1/2 90:10; 10,000t bonus and 3,000t shredded scrap. It departed from Bellingham on October 23 and is destined for eastern India in late-November.
“As president of ABC Recycling, it fills me with enormous pride to see our company send its first bulk shipload of scrap. With this historic achievement, ABC has now reached a milestone of epic proportions!
I remember our Burnaby location installing its first rail line in 1973, and this gave us the ability to sell our product directly to steel mills in North America. It is gratifying to see how far we have come today by reaching this new milestone, as we can now sell our product anywhere in the world independently.
I am extremely proud of everyone at ABC who supported this project. Everyone’s skill and hard work have taken ABC to where we are today, and this journey has been a very memorable and exciting one for me to take part in!” – Harold Yochlowitz
