PD Ports Named Outstanding Service Carrier

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

PD Ports, the operator of North East port, Teesport, has been named the Most Outstanding Service Carrier of the Year in 2009 by UK retailer, ASDA, at its annual National Carrier of the Year awards ceremony.

The award was won by PD Ports for its Logical Link service - a coastal feeder container shipping service offering a next day connection between Felixstowe in the south of England and Teesport in the north, which runs three days per week.

ASDA has used the Logical Link service since it launched in January 2009, to ship goods destined for its northern markets into Teesport, where the retailer operates a 360,000ft distribution center.    

In its first year of operation, the Logical Link service reached its goal of reducing operational costs for customers and minimizing the adverse impact that road transport has on the environment.

ASDA, which opened the first portcentric import center at Teesport in 2006, has now considerably reduced the volume of company trucks on the already over-burdened UK road network. This has led to a saving of over 1,265,459 road miles.  That’s enough to make almost three trips to the moon and back.
