Tilbury bulk service goes to five calls a week

[ May 12, 2014   //   ]

The joint SCS Multiport-CWT service is to increase calls at Tilbury’s London Container Terminal to five a week on its service to and from Amsterdam. The service imports bulk building bricks and stone for the UK housing market, and exports large volumes of the waste for Amsterdam power plants. CWT will create a new depot for the service in Tilbury and the increase in business brings the Fiorano vessel, partnering the existing Vantage. Director of SCS Multiport, Anton van Hattem, said: “We have seen an increase in demand for our service and this has led to this expansion from three to five calls each week to Tilbury. Tilbury is our ‘home port’ in the UK and we receive an excellent service from the team at London Container Terminal. The port offers us an additional advantage of warehousing space which allows us to centralise all of our activities in one convenient place.”
