The port, owned by Forth Ports, has invested over £2m in the development of the bespoke 50,000 sq ft storage facility, which can hold over 6,000 tonnes of bulk raw materials.
The new contract will see the port handle all of the cargo and warehouse management on behalf of EWOS.
Transferring EWOS cargo from Perth to the Port of Grangemouth allows larger vessels and volumes to be handled, as well as reducing the firm’s carbon footprint thanks to a shorter journey to the new port from their facility near Bathgate.
Commenting on the new facility, Derek Knox, Port Manager at the Port of Grangemouth said: “This new long-term partnership with EWOS demonstrates how businesses can achieve cost and carbon footprint savings by basing themselves at our port.
“This is a great example of our Portcentric approach in action as EWOS now benefit from a purpose built storage facility which is less than half an hour from their manufacturing business with direct access to the quayside for importing their goods.”
David Morrice, Country Director of CQN Scotland, said: “The opening of this new warehouse at Grangemouth improves the flexibility in our supply chain and will greatly assist our service levels to our customers.”
