Sweden’s SCA has agreed on a long-term deal with UK Paper Hub of the Port of Tilbury, which will become the pulp and paper group’s UK logistics hub for the import of packaging materials.

SCA operates its own Ro-Ro vessels and will transport “substantial volumes" of packaging paper and other third-party cargoes to the UK Paper Hubs’ dedicated berths.

Steve Harley, Managing Director for SCA UK Logistics said, “2022 will mark our return to the Port of Tilbury. The move renews a long-standing relationship between SCA and Forth Ports which spans half a century.”

Helping to keep global and domestic markets moving, UK Paper Hub will also assist SCA’s circular supply chain with the export of RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel), supporting circular economy and energy from waste solutions across Sweden.

The port of Tilbury is the number one UK port for forest products, construction materials, paper, grain, recyclables and warehousing space. “UK Paper Hub” is the collective brand covering Tilbury’s handling, storage and distribution services for paper and related forest products (including graphical papers and newsprint, packaging paper and board, tissue and hygiene products, and pulp).

It comprises the facilities of the paper handling terminals Enterprise Distribution Centre (EDC) and London Paper Terminal (LPT), which the port owns and operates. Tilbury’s newest port, Tilbury2, opened in May 2020 and along with London Container Terminal.
