It signifies the high level of confidence the UK bulks and aggregates industry has in Teesport to deliver a service unrivalled by others ports on the east coast.
“As a deep sea port and with the capability to handle larger vessels with direct rail links from port side to customer we are able to provide British Gypsum with the best service possible.”
