Just a day aſt er the Budget and the unveiling of the fi rst eight freeports in England, Prime Minister, Boris Johnson and the Chancellor, Rishi Sunak visited successful bidder Teesport on 4 March. Frans Calje, chief executive of operator PD Ports, thanked the Government for the opportunity to create up to 32,000 new jobs and add £2 billion to the region’s economy. PD Ports has worked tirelessly to support the


Tees Valley Mayor’s freeport bid, consulting with over 100 businesses and organisations to develop the plans. The visit also included a meeting with PD Ports apprentices, Emily Clark, Charlie Caswell, Drew Reader, Clark Reader, Bradley Jenkins and David Morgan. PD Ports says it has the most ambitious apprenticeship programme in the industry and is the UK’s number one port operator for supporting young people.
