Port of Tilbury has opened a paper and forest product handling centre – the UK Paper Hub.
The hub covers Tilbury’s handling, storage and distribution services for paper and related forest products, including newsprint, packaging paper and hygiene products.
Paul Dale, Asset and Site Director at the Port of Tilbury, said: “We believe this is the right time to reposition our paper service offering to reflect the changes in the sector and our preparedness as the UK prepares to leave the customs union.
“We have invested in the rebranding of our paper services to showcase the port’s world-class paper offering as a whole.
“Through continuous investment in facilities and equipment at the Hub, we are actively making a progressive contribution to the environment and bioeconomy by reducing all forms of waste within the paper and forest products supply chain.”
