Perry Glading, COO of Forth Ports also commented: “We are delighted to welcome Hemisphere Freight to LPT. This is a clear example of Tilbury’s strength – working with our partners like Hemisphere Freight and their customers to deliver a portcentric solution which is both cost effective and seamless. The Paper Terminal is one of many existing, dedicated facilities in Tilbury which provides specialist handling expertise to container lines wishing provide added value services to their customers.”
The Port of Tilbury, one the UK’s largest ports, handling over 3 million tonnes of forest products, announced the launch of London Paper Terminal (LPT) with industry giants UPM and Zappi in March. The 36-acre terminal which is located within the port estate, includes 700,000 square feet of covered storage and is a centre of excellence for paper and packaging handling and is strategically located offering rapid, easy access to the UK’s largest concentration of consumers.
Hemisphere control the business of a major importer of directories from Spain and quickly spotted the opportunity to relocate over 20k tonnes of palletised paper. OPDR containers from Bilbao are now devanned at the newly created London Paper Terminal immediately adjacent to the container facility, London Container Terminal (LCT). As a result, shunts and handling have been minimised and the operation has been very successful with all parties working together to ensure a smooth and highly efficient supply chain.
London Paper Terminal (LPT) offers major customers storage and distribution facilities and serves all the main trade routes for paper including Europe, Scandinavia, Russia and Baltic States, North America and South America. The terminal is fully prepared for handling the full range of paper-based products including newsprint, magazine and packing materials to palletised fine papers and pulp cargoes. The launch of LPT in March comes on the back of a multimillion pound investment in the terminal by Forth ports, the owners of The Port of Tilbury. The company has invested over £3.5m in the latest state of the art equipment including intelligent clamps for safe handling of paper rolls as well as leftec and reach-stacker equipment. Further investment has been made in IT systems to ensure the terminal has the latest paper handling technology.
The Port of Tilbury’s London Paper Terminal announces a new deal with Hemisphere Freight to handle over 20,000 tonnes of directories from Spain.
On April 1, 1917, Trinity Bag and Paper Company was established at 105 Hudson Street in New York City. For three years the founders of Trinity operated as mill agents and distributors of paper products. By 1920, Trinity's early success enabled them to begin operations as a converter and manufacturer of paper bags and sacks under the name Terminal Paper Bag Co. In that same year Trinity moved its headquarters to 25 West 43rd Street (home of the New Yorker magazine).
Other than that, it’s onwards and upwards – more reviews, a demos/tapes section soon after and I’ll finally be putting the finishing the finishing touches on Termbo print issue #4 and other paper goods.
