As a trusted port operator and stockholder for some of the UK’s largest manufacturers and suppliers, we have in-depth knowledge and specialist expertise in importing and exporting all types of steel and metals products.
A number of our ports on the east coast of the UK can handle, store and process metals, including steel, coil, plate, pipe, tube, rebars and more. Flexible and innovative solutions are delivered to suit your exact business needs, all while working to the highest levels of efficiency and safety. Working with PD Ports provides access to a wealth of services that can be accessed quickly through one point of contact, saving time you time and effort.
As the UK’s leading import terminal for long steel products, Groveport is in a prime location just three miles from the motorway network with easy access to the Midlands. Providing cost savings and efficiency, we offer truly portcentric solutions at Groveport using our extensive open storage areas equipped with cranage and stevedores that have specific expertise in steel and metals.
At Hartlepool and Immingham, we offer almost half a million square foot of bonded warehousing, making them two of the East Coast’s most well suited sites for steel storage. And with the ongoing uncertainty of international safeguarding measures and quotas, importers can use these facilities to store cargo under bond, enabling steel traders to customs clear products once quotas refresh providing a solution to a current and costly issue.
These locations can act as a safe haven for your steel products, with our dedicated teams supporting traders and manufacturers in what’s currently a complex time for the sector.
Teesport has seen investment of £50M in a newly constructed deep water general purpose quay. This upgraded infrastructure, coupled with storage options and great transport networks makes it an ideal location for metals.
