Teesport savours Southern Discomfort
Teesport Container Terminal 2 (TCT2), the recently opened second container terminal at PD Teesport in Middlesbrough, is achieving significant improvements in operational effectiveness for the port and its customers. Over the past three months PD Teesport has accomplished improved productivity with over 50 lifts per hour.
Teesport also reports increased use of rail for container traffic with 1,332 moves reported for February - a 113% on February 2003.
PD Teesport md David Robinson said: "We have invested over £12m so far in TCT2 during 2003, and following the opening in October we - but more specifically our customers - are really reaping the rewards.
"In particular, this performance has been achieved on the large container ships, re-enforcing the capability of TCT2 to handle them. And we continue to show truck turnaround at consistently less than 30 minutes.
"This speed of movement through Teesport is in marked contrast to many of the recent horror stories of delays and congestion that have been coming back from disgruntled shippers who have traditionally used southern UK ports."
