PD Ports acquires Groveport

July 10 - PD Ports has expanded its presence on the Humber estuary by acquiring Groveport - a privately owned inland port complex on the UK's River Trent - writes Isabel Freedman.

Groveport handles a mix of bulk cargoes, including steel coils and pipes, through its 190 acre freehold site. The terminal has 14 quayside cranes, with lifting capacities of up to 40 tonnes.

Martin Rees, managing director of Groveport, said: "The acquisition of Groveport by PD Ports is a very positive natural progression for Groveport. We will become the major asset within PD Ports' Humber activities, adding to what is already a well-established operation, providing services in both the short and deep sea shipping markets."
