Leading port-centric operator Import Services has opened a new extension to its container port, timed to help the firm cope with products now arriving in containers from the Far East, especially toys for Christmas presents.

Client services director Mike Thomas (pictured above) said the advent of our container port extension will provide the necessary capacity for the seasonal influx.

“We can now store 53,000 pallets in narrow aisle racking across the business,’’ said Thomas.

“Our container port facility is 200m from the side of a container ship and this provides us with the ability to move imported product swiftly, processing orders for Christmas and delivering to retailers as diverse as John Lewis and Amazon, Harrods and Tesco, Toys R Us and El Corte Ingles.

“Our port-centric expansion, facilitated by ABP Southampton, is also providing an optimum route to market for business to consumer orders which is a growing part of our clients’ business. At the start of the season our distribution centres are processing 10,000 orders a week which will increase steadily towards peak."
