PD Ports has celebrated the commitment of 16 of its long serving employees at a dedicated ceremony held at Judges Hotel.

With the 2020 and 2021 events forced to be postponed due to the pandemic, the ceremony was the largest long service awards ever held by the Company with employees from across the group celebrating both 25 and 40 years of service.
