PD Ports signs pledge to support veterans

(Posted on 27/06/18)

As one of the UK’s major port operators and logistics specialists, PD Ports has been a strong advocate of the value employing former military workers brings to the business, with around 8% of its 1,200 workforce being service veterans and reservists.

Russ McCallion, PD Ports’ HR Director, said: “The wealth of transferable skills and attitude ex-service men and women bring to our business is exceptional. They are disciplined, decisive and determined individuals with a true team spirit, which adds real value to our business and the wider supply chain. I would encourage any business operating in the logistics sector to consider the potential of employing former military personnel.

“With Europe’s largest Garrison at Catterick, only 30 miles away from our main operations at Teesport, we aim to help provide stable employment opportunities for veterans as they start to build a new life.

“Having a diverse and inclusive workforce is a key part of our corporate social responsibility framework and signing the Armed Forces Covenant further strengthens our commitment to providing the richly deserved support to former military workers.”

The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge from businesses, local authorities and the third sector that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces and their families are treated fairly. PD Ports is proud to join a growing number that have already signed their pledges to recognise the value of our Armed Forces community.

PD Ports owns and operates Teesport one the deepest water ports in the UK and a key driver in the North east economy and one of the region’s largest employers. Other UK operations include the short sea ports of Groveport, Howden and Keadby. The group also operates the largest single warehousing facility at the Port of Felixstowe as well as operations at medina Wharf, Isle of Wight.
