Scotland’s Streamline moves to new Aberdeen hub

[ September 27, 2021   //   ]

Scottish freight and logistics firm Streamline Shipping Group is celebrating its 40th year in business with a move to a new depot at Aberdeen Harbour.

 It has almost doubled warehouse capacity at its Aberdeen headquarters with a new 7,800sq mharbourside facility on Palmerston Quay – formerly Aberdeen Harbour’s historic fishmarket.

The move has allowed Streamline to increase its team of full-time yard operatives by 30 per cent, and double its full-time haulage drivers and vehicles.

Operations director James Roberts (pictured) said: “As we enter our fifth decade in business, we’re delighted to be moving to a larger, more prominent facility in Aberdeen to cope with increased demand.

“Our new warehouse has far greater capacity, allowing us to process up to 5,000 items every day in Aberdeen alone. This will allow us to continue to strengthen our delivery services across our network, both in the UK and overseas, ensuring our customers’ packages and freight get where they need to be.”

Headquartered in Aberdeen, Streamline employs over 200 staff across the country with depots in Glasgow, Orkney, Shetland and Inverness, and offices and chemical processing facilities in England and Norway. It operates over 50 vehicles and 150 trailers delivering throughout Scotland and beyond. The firm also provides lifeline parcel delivery services between the mainland UK and Orkney and Shetland.
