The Logistics Terminal

Port Centric Solutions

For years, importers of freight have incurred the financial and environmental costs of pointlessly hauling containers, weighing up to forty four tonnes, hundreds of miles across the UK only for each container to be returned to the port empty.

Quite simply, the port centric logistics solution offered by TLT enables cargo owners to gain control of both supply-chain costs and the timely delivery of their goods directly from the port Warehousing Solution straight to their customers.

Carbon emissions are significantly reduced by TLT quickly offloading the container at the Port. The empty container is immediately returned to the Exporting Berth, allowing shipping lines to achieve a faster turnaround.

Additionally, TLT offers a complete logistics solution for onward delivery of de-vanned products. This includes everything from palletised loads through to non-palletised freight which is achieved through partnerships with leading pallet distribution network, Pall-Ex and 2,500 haulage companies around the UK as well as using their own modern fleet of vehicles.
