30th November 2020 - Press Release

Port of Dover Cargo Terminal becomes fully temperature controlled

A major stage of the Port of Dover's Cargo Terminal redevelopment is complete, with a fully temperature controlled warehouse now in operation.

The existing eight chamber temperature controlled facility is now complemented by a fully temperature controlled out-loading chamber, meaning that every stage of the operation including storage, container stripping and distribution can be conducted at a set temperature. This is a huge development for the logistics and cargo customers that use the Port for fast and direct access into and from Europe.

The upgrade has also added an additional 550 temperature controlled pallet spaces, allowing to pre pick loads to make the dispatch more efficient.

Nik Scott-Gray, General Manager at Port of Dover Cargo said:

“The out-loading chamber joins a host of other new facilities, including two new berths, an ambient storage shed plus many infrastructure improvements. Since our new multi-purpose Terminal first became operational a year ago, Port of Dover Cargo has continued to flourish with the new business opportunities it continues to bring. We have the capability to handle a whole range of cargo including breakbulk, containers and agribulk, plus expanding our highly successful fresh produce trade even further.”

In July 2020, Seatrade launched a second regular service at the Port, highlighting the Port's exceptional position as a world leader in the handling of perishable cargo and making Dover the UK Port of call for Seatrade’s Zodiac and Rayo Reefer services.

In May 2020, the Port processed 30,000 tonnes of bulk aggregate for the first time as the team welcomed Aggregate Industries (AI) for its debut visit to Dover.

Duferco’s SVS Vega vessel call importing Rebar steel at the end of 2019 marked the first cargo to be processed through the new Terminal, plus a brand new customer and commodity. The Port also recently welcomed the Caribbean Line & Soreidom vessel MV Herbeira to the new facility for the first time.

Port of Dover Cargo has recently received its HACCP certification, which follows the 360 Quality Code and organic accreditation from the Organic Food Federation, both in March 2020, plus full AEO status (Authorised Economic Operator) in customs and security in July 2019.
