Port of Tilbury reaches final of logistics awards
Port of Tilbury in London has reached the final of the prestigious annual Logistics Awards. The port has been shortlisted in the ‘New Facility’ category for their recently opened terminal, Tilbury2.
Tilbury2 opened in May 2020 and is one of the UK’s most modern and largest unaccompanied freight ferry terminal offering a multimodal (rail, road, sea, river), lower carbon route to the biggest consumer market in Europe and largest industrial bases in Britain, London and the South East.
Despite the challenges around the global pandemic restrictions, the freight ferry and rail terminals opened on schedule to support high volumes and market-leading turnaround times, with the rest of the new port – including the country’s largest construction materials processing hub – due to complete in Q3 2021.
Utilising the port’s AEO accreditation, Tilbury2’s IT-backed operation is Brexit-ready and based on a state-of-the-art container terminal solution from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) already deployed at the Group’s facilities at London Container Terminal, Tilbury, and in Grangemouth, Scotland’s largest container port.
