B&S switches shipping to Teesport

TeesportFurniture and flooring chain Barker & Stonehouse has switched its shipping to Teesport after appointing PD Ports to handle its imports. The chain had previously been operating its imports through Southampton.

Our loyal regional customer base is the reason we've been able to trade for over 65 years. We like to champion local industry whenever possible and by partnering with PD Ports we're supporting jobs within the community,' says James Barker, Barker & Stonehouse md.

'We are delighted that Barker & Stonehouse has recognised the benefits of using Teesport to import their northern bound goods. This strategy, known as portcentric logistics, is changing the face of UK logistics. As a result it places growing emphasis towards Teesport as a key logistics and distribution hub for goods destined north of Birmingham,' says Geoff Lippitt, PD Ports business development director.
