SMI has highly informative 'away day' to the Port of Tyne

On 24 May 2018 the SMI Ports and Terminals Group had its annual ‘away day’ and this year it was at the Port of Tyne.

The Port of Tyne is a trust port which has its commercial operations located east of the city of Newcastle, at the seaward end of the river Tyne, and which is also the harbour authority for a 19 mile stretch of the river. In total the Port Authority encompasses more than 250 hectares.

The group were hosted by the CEO Andrew Moffat and the COO Steven Harrison, who gave generously of their time and provided a fascinating account of the port’s history, an insight into the current issues of managing an industrial enterprise close to the residential suburbs of a large city and a description of their plans for the future.

SMI has highly informative 'away day' to the Port of TyneAfter the presentation and Q&A session, the visitors were given a tour of the port facilities which is one of the World’s largest for wood biomass imports and the UK’s largest for car exports. In addition the port handles containers, bulk goods, offshore industry supplies, raw tea, forest products, steel products, scrap metal and thousands of cruise and ferry passengers at its Ro-Ro and passenger terminals.

The Chairman of the PTG Council, Han Ozturk, thanked the hosts, on behalf of the visitors, for their warm welcome and the insightful discussion.
