The Logistics Terminal intends to take over a 200,000 sq ft multimodal distribution warehouses, as part of a phased expansion from its current 40,000 sq ft premises.
The warehouse is on a 10 acre plot next to the Port of Tilbury, Dock Gate 2. TLT reckons the new warehouse could handle 800 containers each month.
The firm plans to take on several more terminals for its port centric logistics offerings which prioritises offloading containers quickly, with empty containers immediately returned to the Exporting Berth.
TLT partner Richard Newbold, said: “For years, owners have incurred the financial and environmental costs of pointlessly hauling containers, weighing some forty four tonnes, hundreds of miles across the UK only for them to be returned to the port empty.
“Potentially operating a full ERTS in the future from this facility will enable us to offer customs clearance and de-van of uncleared containers at our new premises. We currently offer a container de-van, storage and delivery service in addition to a fully functional pick and pack high tech warehouse operation. This effectively enables TLT to take care of a client’s entire supply chain operation throughout the UK and beyond.”
