SafeStand® helps out at the Port of Tilbury

20/10/2015 BF Brickwork has started work on their newly awarded project at the Port of Tilbury and have chosen SafeStand® as their chosen access system. The Winvic Construction site which is situated at Berth 45 is a £20million state-of-the art temperature-controlled distribution centre at the Port of Tilbury in partnership with NFT Distribution.

The centre is set to be the largest refrigerated (“reefer”) quayside facilities in Europe. On the doorstep of one of the UK’s major road links (The M25) as well as sitting on a waterway to Europe and beyond, the distribution centre will benefit from the latest distribution technology systems and is expected to create 500 new jobs.

The distribution centre is targeted to be open for business by late 2015. It will have capacity for 25,000 pallets within 230,000 sq ft. and be able to handle more than 2.5 million cases per week.
