Port of Tyne hits green milestone with new net zero warehouse

01 October 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Logistics & Supply Chain, Ports, Maritime & Waterways

The Port of Tyne now operates a Net Zero Port Centric Warehouse, run entirely using clean energy from renewable sources.


Warehouse 21 is used by a wide range of the Port’s 3PL customers, including many household brand names.

All internal materials handling within the warehouse is conducted using electric vehicles powered through renewable sources and the lighting within the facility is provided by energy efficient LEDs.


As part of Tyne 2050, the Port’s transformation strategy, over £2m has already been invested into new clean energy assets and logistics facilities. 


Matt Beeton, CEO at the Port of Tyne said: “Offering green warehousing services is critical to our 3PL customers, because it means these businesses can source the space they need, while also meeting their sustainability targets. 


“Net Zero achievements are a key part of our Tyne 2050 strategy and at a time when there is exceptional demand for warehousing, we can offer customers the advantage of high quality port centric warehousing, efficiency and sustainability.”
