Sheerness – strategic location for UK and European distribution
SCA Logistics Ltd (SLL) is based in Sheerness on the estuary of the river Thames 35 miles from London. With excellent access to road and rail links, Tilbury is the port of choice for onward distribution throughout the UK and France.
SLL relocated its terminal operations during 2015 after a long history of managing the paper handling operations in Tilbury. The result of a strategic review within the group of SCA Logistics companies, Sheerness is able to offer first class cargo handling services as well as unrestricted berth access to minimise port time.
Through our partnership agreement with Peel Ports, we are able to handle in excess of 300,000 tonnes of cargo annually using around 350,000 sq ft of covered warehousing.
Goods can be handled either ex road or vessel and can be stored for onward distribution, mainly by road. Peel's modern fleet of clamp and fork lift trucks, tugmasters and translifter trailers is supported by Briggs Engineering to ensure optimal fleet deployment at all times. Sheerness offers 850 meters of riverside quay with a maintained dredged depth of between 9 meters and 12.2 meters.
Our dedicated workforce is highly skilled in the handling of all products. Our reputation is earned from providing handling and storage – as well as distribution services to exporters of products from Scandinavia and North America into the UK and European market. We are well respected for our expertise in handling forest products, in particular fragile paper reels.
Modern bar code scanning, bespoke stock administration software and strong EDI links ensure that SLL is able to competently respond to our customer's demand for quality management information and 100% stock accountability at all times.
SLL also has facilities in Dublin and Hull; offers UK forwarding services through its network of transport companies and offers shipping services to Northern Sweden and the European Continent.
SLL holds ISO9001 and 14001 accreditation.
