The vessel, which sails under a Panamanian flag, arrived in Great Yarmouth after discharging her previous cargo in Liverpool.

MV Lord Nelson, which was built in 2005, is 176m long and 26m wide, was loaded with nearly 900 trucks of East Anglian barley over five days, destined for the Spanish Mediterranean port of Cartagena.

Gleadell has already used its deep water facility in Great Yarmouth this campaign to load the largest grain ship to leave the Norfolk/Suffolk region this harvest year.

The MV Federal Cedar loaded over 26,000mt of feed barley.

Gleadell says it will continue to take advantage of Great Yarmouth’s unique position in the region that allows it to access further markets afield and drive further export opportunities supporting the regions’s arable farmers.
