Wheat transporter Aasfjord collects a 6,000-tonne cargo of wheat at Tilbury Port.

Frontier Agriculture took control of the grain terminal at Tilbury,
as part of an exclusive partnership with owners Forth Ports, at the beginning of July
– signalling its commitment to markets here and overseas.

Frontier's Marc Rogerson said that there is a good demand for milling wheat worldwide, which the south east is famous for.

He added: “We have trade links to consumers in every importing continent, opening up new options for South East farmers.

“Working with Tilbury means
that we are able to offer a range of new markets and strengthen our position in terms of global exports. We have the insight
to look where in the world the value is, and can base our trading on that knowledge, generating the best possible returns for growers.”

Commenting on the partnership
Peter Ward, Senior Asset Manager from The Port of Tilbury said,“We
are delighted that Frontier is now
fully on board as our long-term strategic partner at Tilbury’s grain terminal. The terminal is one of the

UK’s largest for both export and UK markets. We are excited about this partnership with Frontier and the opportunities that this will bring to growers in the region, consumer customers and to the grain terminal itself.”

Minister for Transport Robert
Goodwill has marked the official
opening of what could become the
UK’s largest logistics hub.

The first phase of the development
at DP World London Gateway,
which includes 180,000 sq ft of distribution space and 25,000 sq ft
of office space, was formally
launched by Mr Goodwill and DP
World chairman Sultan Ahmed 
Bin Sulayem.

Based on market demand, DP World
is planning to increase the site of
the centre to nearly 388,000 sq ft.

Robert Goodwill said: “DP World
London Gateway is an excellent
example of the benefits inward investment brings to the UK economy.

“Any project that gives the country an edge, whether it
be generating supply chain efficiency or leading the way
in environmental sustainability, should be commended.”

DP World chairman Mr BinSulayem said: “Our team

has worked hard to deliver
the first building at the
London Gateway Logistics Park.

I would like to congratulate
them on producing a
world-class edifice, fit for the challenges of 21st Century logistics.
