Maritime Transport Ltd (Maritime) has opened a new rail-connected distribution terminal at the Port of Tilbury
Maritime has been on site at Tilbury for 15 years and hase relocated to a new facility with rail connectivity near London Container Terminal.
Handling mostly steel for distribution to Europe and rest of the world, Maritime will use an existing terminal railhead which has been converted to allow both straddle carriers and reach stackers to operate simultaneously which will double the handling capacity of the terminal. The terminal will handle both intermodal and specialised steel wagons from the first day of operation.
A 55,000 ft2 Rubb shed was relocated from another part of the port to the site to provide rail connected undercover storage. Maritime can accommodate both domestic and International/EU trade in the new terminal.
