Hilde Dahle, adviser to the board and in charge of Kaltun’s north European sales and marketing, explains: “We were looking for an experienced and competent logistics partner capable of providing an integrated range of services including stevedoring, customs clearance, warehousing and onward road transport of our product. PD Port Services fitted the bill perfectly.”
