Creating the perfect blend

[ September 25, 2014   //   ]

PD Ports has officially opened a £2.5 million new warehouse for Taylors of Harrogate in Billingham. Operations for the family tea and coffee merchants, best known for its Yorkshire Tea blend have been moved from two warehouses at Teesport to a 105,000sq ft space at Cowpen Lane. The move gives Taylors more warehousing capacity as their business expands and also enables PD Ports to collate tea by assembling bags of tea from different origins onto one pallet to assist in the creation of the blends.

PD Ports group CEO, David Robinson, commented: “Taylors of Harrogate’s continued commitment to using a portcentric solution through Teesport highlights the growing significance of Teesside as a major centre for logistics.”
