PD Ports’ partnership with Seacon
(Posted on 11/09/18)
PD Ports has formed a partnership with Seacon (SG), a UK port-based terminal operator, freight forwarder and one of the UK’s largest independent suppliers to paper and pulp importers in the Forest Products industry, to establish a point of entry into the North of the UK for its customers.
Already operating from the South at the Port of Tilbury, Seacon (SG), part of the Seacon Group of Companies, will now use Teesport, owned and operated by PD Ports, as its Northern logistics hub.
The Port’s unrivalled connections to the Scandinavian market through shipping line, Containerships, its proximity to an excellent transport network and PD Ports’ skilled and experienced logistics team were instrumental in Seacon (SG)’s decision to choose Teesport.
The addition of Teesport allows Seacon (SG) to provide operational coverage from the North and South of the UK with the support of PD Ports’ skilled and experienced logistics team.
With one company able to offer a variety of services, working with PD Ports allows companies to benefit from flexibility, control and visibility of their supply chain. Within this operation, PD Ports has been able to provide a portcentric logistics solution integrating various services, all managed by one team, from shunting containers, unloading to the warehouse, storing the cargo and transporting it to its final destination using its dedicated road haulage fleet.
The relationship between PD Ports and Seacon (SG) allows expertise and knowledge to be shared providing the best and most efficient service.
Martin Phillips, Commercial Manager at Seacon (SG), 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.”
Ian Johnson, PD Ports’ Director Portcentric Logistics, said: “Fostering relationships with market leaders like Seacon (SG) allows us to learn and share our expertise to work to create more tailored solutions for customers using our port facilities.
“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 (SG) further cements our vision of providing importers with bespoke portcentric solutions.”
