UK port-based terminal operator and freight forwarder Seacon has established a partnership with PD Ports to provide its customers with a point of entry in the north of the UK.

Seacon already operates from the South at the Port of Tilbury and, with PD Ports-operated Teesport becoming its northern logistics hub, the company will have both north and south UK  coverage.

“Working with PD Ports has allowed us to have an entry point into the UK through the North for our customers,” said Seacon commercial manager Martin Phillips.

“The service received so far has been excellent and it has enabled us to increase efficiencies in our customers’ supply chain and provide further flexibility in the operation as and when needed. Customers have already re-signed to extend contracts since the formation of this partnership; which we believe is illustration of the initial success of this project.”
