New Jobs Announced at Leading Container Freight Terminal  

Permanent Employment as Port Invests in the Future 

UK – The London Container Terminal (LCT) situated at Tilbury and currently the third largest such freight facility in the UK with over half a million boxes passing through each year, has announced the creation of 75 new permanent jobs this year as the Forth Port’s owned facility gears up investment. The Port of Tilbury is a significant employer with a workforce of over 1,100, many of whom live in the local area and the company says it is investing millions of pounds across the port in the areas of infra-structure, equipment and people.

The 75 new jobs at London's major port will include straddle carrier drivers to handle the new equipment, mentioned in our story last year, who currently work as contractors at the port but who will now have permanent employment at LCT with all the benefits of this job security. The investment will also see a major training programme get underway to enhance the skills of both straddle carriers and crane drivers, both for the new positions and the terminal’s existing staff, through the port’s dedicated onsite training academy which will lead on the training programmes for LCT. Commenting on the announcement, Perry Glading, Chief Operating Officer of Forth Ports said:

“We are delighted to announce these new jobs for London Container Terminal. At Tilbury we are committed to helping our customers to achieve their ambitions which in turn, lead to job creation. Furthermore, through our skills development programme we aim provide our employees with the skills they need to perform their roles to the highest standard. These new jobs give security to the men and women who work at LCT and will further enhance our customer service.
"As London’s major port, we pride ourselves on our first rate customer service and these jobs are part of the significant investment we have undertaken across the port, including new crane and straddle equipment and ICT systems to ensure an unrivalled experience. We will continue to invest in our people and our port in the future."

As a result of continued success we are expanding our team and have 3 new vacancies.

Commenting on the reason for their departure, Erik Eisenberg, APM Terminals Vice President for Communications in The Hague, said: “They have left as a consequence of not following internal policies.”
The news comes just days after APM Terminals posted a 2014 profit of US$900 million, according to the Journal of Commerce, a significant growth on the $770 million recorded in 2013.
