With organisations facing increasing pressure to maximise the efficiency of their supply chains, intermodal logistics has evolved into a globally accepted platform for transporting goods.
By utilising several forms of transport, goods can be moved across continents more securely, with reduced cargo-handling, reduced costs and increased efficiency. Lead times are reduced as the fastest mode of transport can be used most effectively.
The effectiveness of any port relies upon its hinterland connections. For Teesport and its customers, these transport links are among the best in the UK. However, it’s not just road where we can demonstrate this strength.
From our own Port located rail terminal, Teesport is linked to the North and South via East Coast Mainline and to the West via Trans-pennine route. A recently established service from Teesport to Widnes by DRS is able to carry 40ft and 45ft high cube containers. This offers a high level of flexibility to our customers and makes Teesport the logical choice for ‘just in time’ deliveries.
