The Teesport Estate is a major deep sea complex and a national asset for trade, supporting the movement of international imports and exports acting as the UK’s northern gateway for international trade. With one of the deepest general purpose keys in the UK, the Port is capable of handling a variety of dry bulk and project cargoes including metals, steel, agribulk, aggregates and forest products via a £50 million multi-purpose heavy lift quay. Complimented by the £9.2 million state-of-the-art Teesport Bulks Terminal, PD Ports continues to drive the revival of bulks handling on Teesside.
Continued investment over the past seven years has also enabled 12% annual growth in container volumes, with a total capacity of 650,000TEU over its two dedicated container terminals. PD Ports is also currently progressing plans to deliver The Northern Gateway Container Terminal; a development that will accommodate an expected rise in customer demand of at least 70% and offer the potential to handle 1.5 million containers.
The world-leading infrastructure at the Teesport Estate is also complimented by three Ro-Ro ramps, excellent multi-modal transport links and extensive warehousing facilities allowing PD Ports to offer a truly portcentric solution for any supply chain.
Currently in its 20th year of supporting young people, PD Ports is the UK’s number one port group for supporting young people, developing the most ambitious apprenticeship programme in the UK ports industry and consistently playing an active role in promoting skills and training across the Tees Valley. With a long and proud history of recruiting apprenticeships since the launch of our first scheme in 2001, we continue to work with educational partners to equip young people with the futures they deserve.
PD Ports is accredited to ISO 9001 (quality), 14001 (environmental) and 50001 (energy).
