Have you considered the cost benefits of having a North East based fulfilment provider?
Lower Shipping costs.
Reduced Co2 miles.
Neutral Shipping Time.
There’s a reason why the likes of Asda, Tesco, Amazon and others have distribution centres in the North East. Shipping stock into our North East ports reduces cost, is time neutral, and reduces CO2 miles versus trunking from Felixstowe.
Teesport and Spark Response
We operate a close strategic partnership with Teesport to help improve the movement and visibility of containers from Asia to the UK. By utilising Teesport as opposed to Felixstowe, we can reduce end to end costs, eliminate demurrage charges, quay rent and container retention costs, and hugely reduce road miles and C02 emissions.
Port of Tyne and Spark Response
Located just 6 miles from Spark Response, The Port of Tyne was voted UK Port of the Year 2014. For retailers wanting a well-equipped, well-connected, ideally located port instead of battling through the congested South-East and adding thousands of unnecessary road miles to the mix, then they need look no further than the Port of Tyne’s integrated logistics operation.
