Estates management

Approaching nearly 990 acres it’s good to know at PD Ports we have a wide and diverse range of properties extending from our own safe and secure state of the art operational warehouses for freight storage and subsequent distribution, to units pertinent to the docks and directly connected to the maritime industry.

Asda, Tesco, many respected major car manufacturers and industrial conglomerates operate from within our estate, along with a host of other preeminent tenants, all taking advantage of the excellent local transport infrastructure including numerous road networks, rail transport links and two airports.

Industrial sites, commercial units, office accommodation, distribution centres, parcels of land, large or small, to cater for any sector, it’s all available within our safe and secure surroundings.

Larger sites also remain available for development at four of our key locations:

Teesport Estate

The Teesport estate covers an area of over 700 acres on the South bank of the River Tees. At the heart of the estate is the major cargo handling facility. The proximity to the container development was key to attracting the 325,000 sq ft ASDA Wal*Mart warehouse development which opened for business in 2006 and the 1.3 million sq ft Tesco development in 2009. Over 123 acres remain available for further expansion of warehousing or distribution projects.

Teesport Commerce Park

The 118 acre facility is owned and managed by ourselves and houses a number of companies offering mainly offshore related services. A choice of warehousing, industrial units and office space is available together with dry docks, berths capable of handling FPSO’s and heavy lift craneage of up to 190T.

Seal Sands

Seal Sands is a major petrochemical complex on the North bank of the River Tees. The site was established in the late 1960’s and has helped Teesside to become the UK’s premier petrochemical centre. Home to companies involved in the chemical industry and its related activities, Seal Sands still has a number of prime sites available for development.

Hartlepool Dock

Within Hartlepool Dock over 74 acres are available for development as industrial use. The emerging wind energy sector offers a major opportunity to utilise this land and perhaps aid us to realise our ambitions for a wind turbine manufacturing plant to support the existing successes in this sector, Heerema Offshore and JDR cables.

Distribution Centres (DCs) vary in specification according to the product they handle and the customer profile they service.

Within the Teesport Bonded area we can offer you:

  • land to enable you to build the DC to your specification
  • a purpose built general design DC for your use
  • a design and build option for you to specify and lease back
