Scunthorpe’s steel works are famous throughout the world and frequently light up the night skies over Lincolnshire to become ablaze with colour, all due to TATA Steel.
The largest integrated steel works and processor in the UK with associated rod mills and continuous casting plants.
Scunthorpe is appropriately sited on a rich bed of iron ore and limestone, the vital ingredients for steel production. Today lime is still sourced from the local Melton Ross quarry. So it’s fitting that PD Ports has one of the largest warehousing and cross docking facilities right here in the town’s industrial heartland.
Our estate is situated closer than 250m to the main steel producing facility and barely a mile east of the River Trent being just 8 miles from the Humber Estuary. The site also has excellent motorway links via the M180 close to Humberside Airport with Grimsby, Hull and the Killingholme refineries at Immingham just to the East. Connections then to the West include the M18, North and South via the A1 and M1 and the Trans-pennine M62, so ease of access to major towns and cities is rightly geared for all your transportation needs.
Not only is PD Ports’ facility strategically located to support the significant steel manufacturing plants but other industries such as engineering along with that of food production, that’s why we have based a large percentage of our UK logistics fleet here.
