13th May 2020 - Press Release

Port of Dover Cargo welcomes new customer Aggregate Industries



Port of Dover Cargo Ltd processed 30,000 tonnes of bulk aggregate through its new Terminal for the first time this week as the team welcomed Aggregate Industries (AI) for its debut visit to Dover.

The Yeoman Bank vessel transported 30,000 tonnes of Glensanda Type 1 cargo into Dover on 12th May ready for distribution across the East Kent region.

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

“The team is delighted to be handling yet another new commodity and to be working with AI, a leading construction supplier. We are going from strength to strength since the new Terminal became operational at the end of last year, and that’s testament to our excellent Business Development team. My thanks go to Nick Dixon, our Business Development Manager for working hard to form these important new relationships.”

Simon Turk, Logistics Director at Aggregate Industries added:

“Aggregate Industries are extremely pleased to have been able to "fast track" the opportunity with the Port of Dover for the importation of the inaugural cargo of Glensanda aggregates for supply into the East Kent region, in cooperation with JH Haulage Limited.

The vessel discharge operations were conducted efficiently by Dover Cargo Limited assisted by Rail Freight Services Limited, offloading the cargo within 13.5 hours from arrival of the Yeoman Bank. We are excited by this new market opportunity and the developing relationship with the Port of Dover.”

Notes to editors

Last year heralded a new era for Port of Dover Cargo Ltd, with December 2019 becoming a moment in the Port’s history as the brand new Dover Cargo Terminal West became fully operational after five years in the making. Dover Cargo Terminal West was an essential part of a £250 million redevelopment project (co-financed by the EU) - the biggest transformation to ever take place at the Port of Dover.
