VIDEO: Port of Tilbury builds tribute to NHS workers

The London Container Terminal at The Port of Tilbury, moved 137 containers last night to create a monument to the Clap for Carers celebration.

Paul Dale, asset and site director at the Port of Tilbury, said: “We wanted to recognise the important role that the NHS and all the other key workers, including our own port teams here in Tilbury and across the UK, are delivering in these challenging times.

“The team at the container terminal did a brilliant job shuffling the containers and it is a fitting tribute to everyone working at the frontline.”

Ross McKissock, asset manager, London Container Terminal, said: “The team at the container terminal came up with the idea for a container tribute to thank the NHS and key workers.

“It took the team most the day to identify and reshuffle the 137 empty boxes to bring the message to life.

“In total our drivers undertook around 400 moves to create the message which now greets all lorries entering the container terminal. During these tough times, we wanted to create a message of support and hope for us all.”
