Bristol - faster, better, stronger…

Bristol Port’s advancing animal feed trade gained an extra edge this month with an investment in new equipment to boost further the speed and efficiency of operations.

Two British made JCBs have been purchased to add to an impressive range of front end loaders, which are expected to move 700,000 tonnes of animal feed in the next year at Royal Portbury Dock. The vehicles will load over 25,000 lorries a year and as it only takes seven loads from the new JCBs to fill an articulated vehicle, the operations are expected to be faster and more efficient.

The Port is long established as one of the leading players in the animal feed trade. The ABS sheds alone have capacity for over 200,000 tonnes of feed such as sunflower pellet and high protein soya, which mostly goes on to feed British cattle for dairy farming. In 2015, the Port invested in the largest single feed mixer in the country to offer a blending service to customers.

James Reeson, Operations Manager said:

“The additional front end loaders will add to our efficiency in servicing our customers for the future”

Meanwhile, the Port recently passed the Universal Feed Assurance Scheme Audit.
