Ports : PD Ports celebrates 60% increase in bulk cargo volumes one year since opening Teesport Bulks Terminal

PD Ports, owners, and operators of Teesport have recently celebrated the first anniversary since the unveiling of its state-of-the-art Teesport Bulks Terminal, according to the company’s release.

Officially unveiled in the height of the COVID19 pandemic during an innovative live-streamed virtual ceremony, the Teesport Bulks Terminal marked an important milestone not only for PD Ports but for the Tees Valley as a whole.

The multimillion-pound bulks handling facility, which created 44 new permanent jobs, was opened by then Minister for Regional Growth and Local Government, Simon Clarke MP, and signified the revival of bulk cargo handling on Teesside following the collapse of the steelworks in 2015.

Now, as PD Ports marks the first anniversary of the Teesport Bulks Terminal, the port is celebrating a 60% increase in volumes of bulk cargo handled via the new facility with over two million tonnes handled in the first year since opening, including two record-breaking months.

After securing a third long-term deal to securing the remaining bay inside the 300,000sq.ft. Teesport Bulks Terminal in May, PD Ports is now accelerating its plans to extend the facility further, signifying its ambitions to seize new trade opportunities and secure further long-term private investment to elevate the River Tees to become the UK’s most successful port region by 2050.

CEO Frans Celje said, “It’s been fantastic to see the successful transformation of Teesport’s bulks handling infrastructure through this new facility which is underpinned by our growing customer base.

“To see a 60% growth in bulk handling volumes during 12 exceptionally challenging months and during which time we have also secured three long-term deals at the facility is testament to our continued investment and ongoing commitment to delivering on the leveling up agenda for the North.

“The fact that such established and world-leading businesses within the industry are selecting PD Ports as a critical partner in their supply chains further reinforces our proven track record of delivery and demonstrates the confidence that global companies have in our port facilities and in our region.”

“It wonderful to see that their ambition is paying off with three long-term deals with international customers and excellent rates of growth for the port. This is vital for the creation of high-quality jobs as we move towards prosperity in the years and decades to come and I’m delighted there are plans for further expansion. I congratulate everyone involved for their ambition and success and wish them even more success in the future.”
