Five million tones and more for Teesport

[ March 24, 2014   //   ]

Steel firm SSI has exported its five millionth tonne of slab through PD Ports’ Teesport. It was loaded on to the Double Prestige on 18 March as part of a 68,000 tonne shipment, destined for the parent company in Thailand.

PD Ports’ managing director for bulks and port services, Jerry Hopkinson,  said it was a significant milestone. “Since the blast furnace reopened almost two years ago the relationship between PD Ports and SSI UK has grown stronger which enables milestones like this to be achieved. We will continue to support SSI UK and deliver an outstanding and first class performance.”
