Teesport is Seacon’s friend in the North

[ September 10, 2018   //   ]

PD Ports has formed a partnership with forest products terminal operator and freight forwarder Seacon to establish a northern UK point of entry for its customers.

Already operating at the Port of Tilbury will use PD Ports’ Teesport as its Northern logistics hub.

Seacon commercial manager Martin Phillips commented: “Working with
PD Ports has allowed us to have an entry point into the UK through the North for our customers. The service received so far has been excellent and it has enabled us to increase efficiencies in our customers’ supply chain and provide further flexibility in the operation as and when needed. Customers have already re-signed to extend contracts since the formation of this partnership; which we believe is illustration of the initial success of this project.”

PD Ports’ director portcentric logistics, Ian Johnson, added: “Welcoming Seacon (SG) to Teesport is another vote of confidence not only for the Port, but for the wider Tees Valley. We’re positioning Teesport as the UK’s northern gateway for global shippers serving northern markets, and this move for Seacon further cements our vision of providing importers with bespoke portcentric solutions.”
