Jonathan Williams, managing director of Williams Shipping's logistics division, said: "Cargo handling and transport are a major growth area for us and this investment allows us to grow the business as part of our strategic long-term plan.

"It will open up new employment opportunities, support the maritime and logistics sector and help us realise new revenue streams across multiple sectors.

"For a long time we have provided heavy haulage, and this new service allows us to link this service directly to the port which is on our doorstep.

"It also ties in with our marine facilities, where we already handle loads on and off the quay with our 100 tonne crane and 200 m of quayside."

Development of its new cargo yard included demolition of a warehouse, the construction of a heavy duty concrete slab and creation of new workspace.

The new Hyster reach stacker has bolstered its fleet of specialist vehicles and equipment and is able to lift heavy cargoes onto trucks and flat racks.
