Going with the grain - New cargo customer to christen new Dover Cargo Terminal
Port of Dover Cargo Ltd is delighted to announce that Cefetra's export grain vessel MV Peak Dublin will be the first to call at Dover's new cargo terminal.
The new state of the art multi-purpose cargo terminal facility is a major part of the Port’s £250 million Dover Western Docks Revival development and its commencement of operations heralds the next exciting chapter for the cargo business at Dover.
Nik Scott-Gray, General Manager, Port of Dover Cargo Ltd, said: “What better way to christen our fantastic brand new facility than with a brand new customer. Cefetra’s arrival delivers a real sign of confidence in Dover and the new opportunities we have to offer customers across a range of markets. I am delighted to welcome Cefetra to Dover and look forward to developing a successful partnership in the months and years ahead.”
Andrew Mackay, CEO Cefetra Ltd, said: ”We are pleased that Dover have developed a new multi-purpose cargo terminal and that Cefetra will be loading the first vessel through the facility. Our new Kent office opened in August and we are confident that this will be the first vessel of many that we will load in Dover as we open up new markets for the produce of the farmers of Kent. ”
As a major player in the grain market serving the UK and Ireland, Cefetra’s arrival at Dover is another demonstration of the critical role the Port of Dover plays in supporting trade via these two nations to other European markets.
