Tilbury says it with boxes

[ April 3, 2020   //   ]

The port of Tilbury made its own unique contribution to the Clap for Carers event on 2 April, shuffling 137 suitably-coloured containers to create a tribute to NHS workers and other key workers.

Asset and site director Paul Dale, said: “We wanted to recognise the important role that the NHS and all the other key workers, including our own port teams here in Tilbury and across the UK, are delivering in these challenging times. The team at the container terminal did a brilliant job shuffling the containers and it is a fitting tribute to everyone working at the frontline.”

Asset manager London Container Terminal Ross McKissock, explained: “The team at the container terminal came up with the idea for a container tribute, taking most of the day to identify and reshuffle the 137 empty boxes to bring the message to life. “In total our drivers undertook around 400 moves to create the message which now greets all lorries entering the container terminal. During these tough times, we wanted to create a message of support and hope for us all.”
