Forth Ports Limited, one of the UK’s largest port groups, has today launched an exciting new online presence and invites people to view their ‘digital’ port at www.forthports.co.uk.
The website has been developed with the key focus of enhancing the customer experience through easy and intuitive navigation throughout the site. The design is highly visual and uses infographic icons to ensure that people can find the service or port they require. For the first time, the site has a wide range of visuals and detailed information from across the business as well as photos of the customer facing teams around the UK.
Forth Ports is a major business in the UK handling over 41million tonnes of cargo each year across its eight ports in Scotland and Tilbury on The River Thames, London’s fastest growing port. The group is investing over £1billion in its facilities including infrastructure developments and equipment as well as a proposal to build a major new port terminal for London, Tilbury 2.
Commenting on the new website, Charles Hammond, Group Chief Executive said: “Our new website comes at an exciting time for Forth Ports as we continue to deliver our ambitious expansion and investment programme around the UK. We have a strong purpose and our strategy is to invest in supply chain solutions for our customers. We invest continuously in our people through the development of their skills and performance at our award winning in-port training academies. We invest in infrastructure and technology to deliver an excellent offering for customers.
The new website will become the cornerstone of our marketing strategy and we hope that our current and future customers enjoy using the site. My thanks to Denvir who worked with us on this project.”
