Trafford Park docks think big
Esprit’s Trafford Park Docks in Manchester welcomed another large shipment recently from Europe via the Manchester Ship Canal. The 3,500 tonne MV Scot Ranger delivered four large silos destined for a Manchester factory. The unloading of the silos was managed by Trafford Park
company Speedrite before making the final leg of the journey under police escort. Graham Dixon, Group Director of Esprit Warehousing and Docks, commented: “This is exactly what the ship canal should be used for - let’s get freight back on the Manchester Ship Canal, reducing congestion and pollution on Greater Manchester’s roads.”
