Working together to secure a strong future for cargo at Dover

The Port of Dover has been in fruitful discussions with George Hammond PLC to explore how best to secure the long term success of the cargo business at Dover as the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) scheme, designed to further develop that key business, moves forward.

Established in 1767, Kent based, George Hammond PLC developed the general cargo business in Dover over 50 years ago and with the valued support of the Port of Dover have successfully operated the Dover Cargo Terminal since its inception in 1990. Both parties have identified that the surest way to provide long term loyal customer continuity into the new DWDR era is to integrate the Port Services Division of George Hammond PLC into the wider Port business. With the continuing involvement of George Hammond PLC’s managing director James Ryeland and his dedicated senior team and staff, the Port will preserve the existing expertise whilst enabling the business to grow.

The parties have signed Heads of Terms for the transaction and are currently negotiating the detailed legal agreement before embarking on the process to effect the transfer, which will herald the next exciting step for the cargo business and the future of the Port.
