PD Ports plans Groveport expansion

All Steels Trading to expand warehouse capacity

UK terminal operator PD Ports said it plans a multimillion-pound investment to expand warehouse capacity at its Groveport site in partnership with All Steels Trading.

Announced on the first day of Breakbulk Europe, the long-term contract with All Steels represents the largest single investment in the last decade at Groveport and will see the firm’s footprint at Groveport expand from 166,000 square feet to more than 300,000 square feet.
“We are incredibly proud to have further strengthened our long-standing relationship with All Steels Trading as UK port of choice beyond 2035. The length of the contract with All Steels Trading shows a true partnership and demonstrates the trust and confidence the Company has in our market knowledge,” said Geoff Lippitt, PD Ports Group business development director.
A subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Management, PD Ports owns and operates Teesport, the UK’s third-largest port by volume, handling more than 40 million tonnes per year with some 5,000 vessel calls.
