Private road and rail logistics provider The Potter Group has invested millions of pounds to offer clients a full intermodal container management service. Based on its expertise in road and rail freight, storage and distribution, the group has introduced an all-inclusive service covering every step – from taking deep sea containers from dockside to an inland terminal by rail, storage and finally onward shipment by road or rail, to anywhere in the country.
Boosted by the success of the recent £8.5M investment in its Selby Terminal, the group is investing further to upgrade both Ely and Knowsley terminals, as well as continuing to develop the Selby facility. Work is already underway in Ely to provide facilities to handle at least 60 containers daily and the company has added Roadrunner transport management software to its existing IT systems.
The programme will develop in line with business growth, which has already started with a contract from EWS to handle Ikea imports.
