Ferro Alloy Bulk Handling


T W Logistics Limited is a leading independent operator for the handling of bulk & packed Ferro Alloys. We aim to provide a comprehensive logistics service from the import of the alloys (including cargo handling, storage, and added value processing as required), through to delivery to the end user.

Ferro Alloys remain as our core business and we continue to be one of the leading independent operators in the UK for the handling and processing of bulk & packed Ferro Alloys. Historically, shipments would arrive at the UK deep sea ports such as Immingham & Hull, and were collected by truck or transhipped over-side into barges operated by T W Logistics for delivery directly into our riverside warehouses.

As the frequency of direct UK port calls diminished for deep sea bulk line vessels, and containerisation increased, the majority of cargoes today are delivered in either short sea coaster vessels (direct from European producers or transhipped from the continent) or the goods arrive in containers delivered direct to our sites from all the main UK container ports.
