The containers will be received into the port of Felixstowe and unloaded into PD Logistics’ 500,000 sq ft onsite warehouse facility for bonded storage prior to onward despatch.

The new contract will increase the volume of bonded products that PD Logistics currently handles at this facility. Consequently, it has expanded its wet bond area from 80,000 sq ft to 165,000 sq ft to accommodate the imported Tsingtao beer.

Commenting on the agreement, James Wright, Sales Controller at Halewood International, said: “With the Tsingtao agreement in place, we needed to identify a partner who was able to offer a large bonded warehouse facility as close to the port as possible, which would enable us to maximise the efficiency of our supply chain.”

Jerry Hopkinson, MD, bulks, ports and logistics for PD Ports, added: “In today’s economic climate, many companies are looking to drive down costs and the handling and storage of products at a port-based logistics centre.

“It is increasingly recognised as a cost effective and viable supply chain solution.”
