Tilbury record for Freightliner

Freightliner reckons it has achieved a new daily throughput record of 481 containers handled in Tilbury.

Managing director Adam Cunliffe said: “Since 2009, year on year we have seen our volumes at Tilbury steadily increase. Improved operations, the support of container transfer from Forth Ports and the launch of our new container handling IT system, Spinnaker, last year have helped us to achieve our record throughput.”

It operates 16 daily import/export services from the port to eight destinations across the UK.
