Newcastle. Home of the Toon Army, Greggs, Brown Ale and girls with anti-freeze for blood who insist on wearing miniskirts regardless of the wind chill factor. We love it.
But in addition to these wondeful things, Newcastle is also the home of the Port of Tyne. The Port operates its own full-stack solution: container unloading, warehousing and distribution - with skilled operators to help manage customers supply chain requirements.
On site there is 500,000 sq ft of high security, high value, high tech, fully racked narrow aisle customs-approved warehousing capable of storing 53,000 racked pallet spaces and providing devanning, repacking, stock-control services via a computer controlled dispatch and handling system enabling full tracking and traceability of palletised stock using truck mounted radio data terminals. In addition, the town's rich industrial heritage means that every conceivable type of warehousing is available nearby.
