LNG terminal picks DB Schenker Logistics

South Hook, the liquefied natural gas terminal, at Milford Haven has signed a three year deal for DB Schenker Logistics to provide all its domestic and international shipping and forwarding services.

DB Schenker will supply shipping and forwarding services for both spares and materials to and from South Hook. Air freight, ocean freight, road freight, courier, break-bulk and heavy lift movements will all be required under the terms of the contract with inbound shipments coming from Australia, North America, the Far East and Europe.

The South Hook terminal can process 15.6 million tonnes of LNG a year and is capable of delivering 21 billion cubic metres of gas a year into the UK’s national transmission system meaning that South Hook has the potential to deliver a significant proportion of the UK’s gas requirements.
